Soaking Nuts & Seeds (Traditional Method)

A Variety of Nuts & Seeds SoakingSoaking Nuts & Seeds 

Nuts and seeds are nutrient-dense and easy to munch; they also contain enzyme inhibitors and plant toxins, like phytic acid. This is why it’s best to soak them in warm, salty water.

When this soaking step is skipped, the inhibitors inside nuts and seeds can prevent your gut from absorbing nutrients in an otherwise nutrient-rich food. These inhibitors weaken digestion, steal nutrients from you, and cause food sensitivities. If you already struggle with poor digestion or a health condition like osteoporosis then you want to do all you can to keep your gut strong.

The most efficient way to minimize these harmful enzyme inhibitors and toxins is to make your own nuts and seeds with the recipe below.
