A few years ago a friend told me to soak my nuts before eating them. Hmmm, I’d never thought about soaking my nuts before but I listened and..holy canoli, now it’s really hard to eat them without letting them chill in water for a few hours (approx. 7-24hrs). They taste so juicy and clean and the flavors of the nut really shine through. Here’s why you should always soak before you consume.
- A grain, a nut or a seed has life potential. If under the right circumstances (water), these little guys can grow into a full blown plant and produce more life – hence ingesting this is pretty awesome.
- Letting the nuts sit in water releases any toxins from the skin of the nut and encourages more production of vitamins and enzymes.
- Makes digestion and distribution of nutrients more efficient.
