Soak your Nuts!
I don’t think it’s common knowledge but it’s important to properly prepare nuts and seeds. This makes them easier to digest and their nutrients more readily available. This is especially important for children who have immature digestive systems.
The basic process:
Dissolve 1/2 tbsp of sea salt in approximately 5 cups of water.
Add 2 cups of nuts.
Soak for a minimum of 7 hours or overnight.
Rinse and strain the nuts.
Preheat oven to no more than 150°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment and place nuts on the baking sheet.
Dry the nuts for 12 to 24 hours in the oven or dehydrator.
Cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
Note: I would not use this method for flax or chia seeds they will become too slimy.
