Nuts are hardly 'fresh produce' and probably not a very well rounded diet for someone expending the kind of energy long ocean crossings require.
Most boat fridges can hardly hold a week's worth of produce, hence the 'walk in' fridge comment. Keep in mind that refrigeration is the most perishable system aboard a cruising boat, especially at sea, and therefore should not be used as one's only source of food conservation.
