"Nuts and seeds are rich sources of amino acids and
essential fatty acids, but you must eat them raw and as freshly harvested as possible to
gain the full spectrum of their nutritional benefits.
In the dry state, nuts and seeds can be quite difficult to
digest due to their enzyme inhibitors, which enable them to be stored for a long time
without going rancid.
The best way to eat them is to cover them with water and
let them soak overnight in the refrigerator. This inactivates their enzyme inhibitors,
softens their fibers for easier digestion, and renders their nutrients easier to
Vegetarians can easily get all the essential amino and
fatty acids which meat eaters get from animal protein, simply by eating a handful or two
of raw nuts and seeds everyday.
The best nuts for nutrition are almonds and pecans, and the
best seeds are sunflower, pumpkin, and flax seed.
Flax seed is particularly good for the
colon (large intestines) and pumpkin for the prostate."
