Activated Nuts

So, these have been creeping into menus lately and I am currently reading Sarah Wilson’s book called ‘I quit sugar‘ and low and behold there was a recipe for said activated almonds. I am going to try them out tonight. Still skeptical but it’s worth giving it a go I guess.

I am going to try out her 8 week program as it sounds fantastic and I eat that much food as it is! Another Aussie called Kate (Inspired Mood) has done the same and she makes it easier to understand.

My best snack ever: activated nuts.You can buy these in health food shops, but they’re expensive. Make your own in bulk: soak a huge bag of almonds overnight in a pot of water with a tbls of rock salt. Drain. Lay out on a baking tray and “heat” in the oven at the lowest temperature possible (less than 65 C; for gas ovens – on the pilot light) for 12-24 hours. Crunchy, slightly toasty goodness. PLUS they’re full of enzymes – activated nuts have sprouted, which means their digestive enzymes have been activated, making them easier to digest, but also great for your metabolism overall. The more enzymes you eat, the less of your own body’s enzymes are required to break down food…which keeps you younger, longer.
