Soaking Nuts & Seeds in 3 Simple Steps
All you need to do is mimic nature's germination system and give those nuts & seeds a good soak to deactivate the phytic acid, giotrogens and enzyme inhibitors!
  • Nuts and seeds of your choice
  • Warm water
  • Sea Salt (I use at least 1 Tbsp per 2 Lbs of nuts/seeds)
  1. Add your nuts or seeds to a glass jar or bowl and mix in warm water & sea salt (make sure there's enough water to cover the nuts completely). Soak them for the time required.
  2. When done soaking, drain out the soak water and thoroughly rinse the nuts.
  3. You can do one of two things: refrigerate the soaked nuts and consume within 24 hours OR dry in a dehydrator (or in oven set on the lowest temperature). Store in an airtight container.
