1. When purchasing nuts make sure they do not taste bitter which indicates that they are old and rancid
  2. The best way to eat seeds and nuts is to soak or dry roast them in a pan
  3. Soaking them overnight (e.g. almonds) to initiate the sprouting process, which makes fats and proteins more digestible
  4. Roasting reduces the effect of rancidity and cuts down the oiliness, making nuts and seeds easier to digest
  5. Lightly dry roast the nuts and seeds, as overheating makes the oils harmful
  6. Store them in a sealed container in the fridge
  7. Roasting increases their warming qualities for the fall and winter, sprouting improves their cooling and fresh qualities for the spring and summer
  8. People with sensitive digestion should follow simple food-combining principles (i.e. eat nuts and seeds alone or with or green and non-starchy vegetable)
  9. The medicinal value is greatly increased when chewed well
  10. Eaten in large amounts they can cause problems in digestion, with blemishes and pimples, and are notorious for producing foul-smelling flatulence

    Appreciating the persistence you put into your site and
    detailed information you present. It’s great to come across
    a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material.

    Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  4. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
