Why Soak Nuts And Seeds?

Why soak nuts and seeds?

Seeds, nuts and beans can just lie around for months when dry -
without sprouting - because they contain enzyme inhibitors to stop
that process. But once they make contact with water, they become
alive and the enzyme inhibitors are released - like Gremlins!

The sprouting enzymes become active in these little seeds and begin
breaking down the food to it's easiest to digest form. This makes
it easier for you to digest and more nutrients are bio-available
and you absorb more nutrients to feed your cells.

Enzymes are alive only in living foods but not cooked foods and begin to die at around 115 degrees Fahrenheit.

For optimal living we need to eat living foods. After all, a “live” food is life giving, energy giving, and nutritious but cooked dead food does not give you the vigor and energy that living foods can.
We know you are a person who wants to get the most out of life, so feeling amazing is very important to you. This element right here is very important.

Begin to eat more living foods, not just soaked seeds. Our challenge to you is to try and eat more vegetables, WE dare you! This would be one of the best things you could do for your health and weight loss.


You don’t need any fancy jars unless you just want to buy them. A bowl works just great for sprouting. When you sprout smaller seeds like sesame seeds, radish seeds, broccoli seeds which are really small, you will want a sprouting jar with a lid.

Flax Seeds:
Soak for 8 hours (overnight). Put flax seeds in a bowl and cover with water about 1 inch above the seeds. Place the bowl on the counter at room temperature for the full 8 hours uncovered. You can cover with a towel to keep bugs out.

The flax seeds will absorb all the water and become a little slimy. This is natural. After 8 hours, put the unused soaked/sprouted flax seeds in the refrigerator with a lid on. They will last about 5 days in the refrigerator.

Sunflower seeds:

Use the same process as flax seeds. Soak for 8 hours (overnight) in a bowl and cover with water about 1 inch above the seeds. Place the bowl on the counter at room temperature for the full 8 hours uncovered. You can cover with a towel to keep bugs out.

After 8 hours, drain the water and store in fresh water. To use, drain water and scoop out what you need for eating. We use for breakfast, pate’s, snacks, granola, raw sushi rolls, and lots of other cool stuff.

Store in the refrigerator with a lid on and be sure to store seeds in fresh water. If they are not stored in water and exposed to the air, they will mold quickly. They will last about 5 days in the refrigerator after sprouted.

Sesame seeds:

Same process as sunflower seeds. These are GREAT sources of calcium.

Soak almonds for 12-24 hours. Put the almonds in a bowl and sit on counter to soak.

With almonds you need to rinse them every 12 hours if you are soaking for 24 hours.

Store almonds the same way you store sunflower seeds. Store in fresh water and put a lid on it and put in the refrigerator. These are great snacks, or for smoothies, or making fresh almond milk, and all sorts of other goodies.

Almonds these days are pasteurized because after an E coli break out involving almonds, the government required all almond growers to pasteurize their almonds – usually by quick steam or a chemical spray.

Even if the package says “raw”, they are technically not raw, it is now against the law to sell them. It is very difficult to find raw almonds now but it can be done. Just do the best that you can with what you have. At least soak your almonds so they are easy to digest.

Heart Month - How To Make Almond Milk!

Tip #2

Making almond milk is easy, inexpensive, and a healthy alternative
to cows milk, soy milk, or even processed almond milk.

Don't get me wrong, we do suggest people purchase almond milk from
the store. However, if you can make your own almond milk you are
more in control of what goes into your tasty beverage.

Here's the step-by-step process if you want to get right to it:

How To Make Almond Milk


1 cup soaked almonds

2-3 cups water

1 strainer bag- read money saving tip below

Optional- 1-2 dates, agave nectar, stevia, cinnamon, vanilla
extract/vanilla bean, dash of sea salt

How To Make:

We recommend soaking 1 cup of almonds in water for 24 hours prior to
using (remember to rinse and add new water after 12 hours). This
will make the almonds soft and easier to blend.

Add the 1 cup of almonds to approximately 2-3 cups of water and
blend until you don't hear the almond chunks hitting the blade.
Using 2 cups of water instead of 3 cups will give the milk a
stronger almond flavor. A high powered blender works great but a
regular blender is fine, too.

When you're done blending, there may still be some almonds chunks,
but that's ok. Get your mesh bag and pour the contents of the
blender through the nut bag into a container/bowl. Squeeze the
contents of the bag until you're left with pretty dry almond pulp
in the bag. Voila, you're done!

Once you have your almonds, put it in a sealed jar or container and
store it in the fridge up to 5 days.

Heart Month - Healthy Tips For The Heart!

We will be focused on tips for keeping your ticker in top shape for the entire month of February.

Tip 1 - Scale down on the White Stuff!
Americans eat more than 22 teaspoons of sugar (about 350 calories worth) and nearly 2 teaspoons of salt per day, both habits can do a number on your heart. Sugar ups your weight, blood pressure and triglceride levels; excessive salt raises blood pressure by making your body retain fluid.

So what's the fix? The American Heart Association (AMA) recommends getting less than 1 teaspoon (6 grams) of salt per day; however, 1/2 teaspoon (3 grams) reduction would mean 6 percent fewer new cases of heart disease, heart attacks and deaths.

Women are recommended to get no more than 6 teaspoons or 25 grams of sugar per day. 9 teaspoons/38 grams per day for men. If a women cut back on this plan by limiting foods and beverages containing sucrose, fructose or glucose, she could lose about a 1/2 a pound a week. A man would loose slightly less.

Give it a try and post your results.
