Soaking Raw Nuts

Soaking Raw Nuts

Soaking Nuts!

The phytates and enzyme inhibitors that make nuts and seeds so tricky to digest can be easily neutralized by soaking in salt water and low temperature dehydrating. The combination of minerals and heat works to break down irritating compounds, while preserving the beneficial fats and proteins. Many traditional cultures intuitively practiced these preparation methods using seawater and the sun, and passed this knowledge down through generations. The tools and techniques of modern science have unabled us to see in an even more detailed way, just how profoundly soaking increases the bioavailability of important nutrients (notably the treasured B vitamins) and activates helpful enzymes that increase nutrient absorption. Unfortunately, this tedious process is cumbersome and costly for large-scale manufacturers, and has been largely lost amidst the packaged convenience foods available today.

Stevia Plant

Stevia Plant

What is Stevia?

Stevia Rebaudiana is an herb in the Chrysanthemum family which grows wild as a small shrub in parts of South America, but it is also cultivated in several other countries. It is completely non-toxic and has been consumed safely for the past twenty years. The plant gets its sweetness from the leaves, and in its crude form is said to be 10-15 times sweeter than table sugar. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, however. Not only is stevia a good replacement for refined sugar, but it has none of the harmful effects that the latter does—It has virtually zero calories and does not raise blood sugar levels. If you don’t have your own plants growing, you can find stevia extract or powdered stevia in most health food stores. Avoid processed stevia powders that have been whitened with bleach. Natural sweeteners like raw honey are good replacements.

Miso

What is Miso?

Miso is usually made from soybeans fermented with salt and Aspergillus oryzae, a fungus widely used in various Asian food and beverage products. If you’re looking for a substitute because you’d rather not eat soy, look around for some non-soybean varieties that have become available in recent years.

Studies have also shown that frequent consumption of miso soup is associated with decreased risk of stomach cancer and breast cancer. Other studies indicate that miso consumption can reduce the effects of radiation exposure and increase survival rates from cancer, particularly dark miso that has been fermented for a long time.

Lecithin

Lecithin

What is Lecithin?

Lecithin is a fat-like substance called a phospholipid. It is produced daily by the liver if the diet is adequate. It is needed by every cell in the body and is a key building block of cell membranes; without it, they would harden. Lecithin protects cells from oxidation and largely comprises the protective sheaths surrounding the brain. Likewise, it is a low-cost supplement that provides choline, inositol, linoleic acid, phosphatidylserine, beneficial fatty acids, and triglycerides. It has proven in human studies to dramatically reduce total cholesterol triglycerides, and bad cholesterol. Always buy non-GMO lecithin granules. If you don’t have any lecithin, you can omit this from the recipe.
