why & how you should sprout your nuts & seeds

So you’ve heard that Soaking & Sprouting Seeds are Healthier for you (right?) Soaking releases many of the gas~producing enzymes~ especially in beans & it makes it easier for your body to digest, it also activates the nutritional potential, doubles the amino acids, and digests way better! + sprouting releases vitamins that aren’t available in an unsprouted legume. Sprouting is a relatively short process that allows the begining of the seed to grow, thus bringing about a more Nutrient Dense food (find out more info here).
