We often forget how delicious seeds and nuts are. And they provide a wealth of nourishment, as well. They contain an abundant supply of essential proteins, nutrients, healthy fats and fiber.
Seeds and nuts are storehouses of phytic acid, and regular consumption can prevent osteoporosis. However, our digestive system is unable to break this acid down, especially if we consume large amounts of these snacks.
You’ll gain maximum value eating them raw or dried, instead of ones that have been roasted in oil.
Another way to extract all the nutrients housed within seeds and nuts, is to activate them – except chia and hemp seeds.
