Soaked Almonds!

Soaked Almonds!A lot of people enjoy almonds as a healthy snack.  I can see why as almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, the same type of health-promoting fats as are found in olive oil.  They are also high in vitamin E, potassium, zinc, and iron.  In addition, they are high in protein and contain more calcium than any other nut which makes them great for those who do not eat any meat or dairy products.  I suggest you eat them in their raw form to get the most nutritional value from this tasty nut!  Dry roasted nuts have been cooked with oils.  The when oils are heated they change and are no longer good for the body.  The heated oils can also cause the nuts to be rancid.  Like other nuts, almonds contain enzyme inhibitors.  This means that their enzymes are lying dormant.  If you soak them you will activate the enzyme and they become easier to digest.
