Every nut or seed has a germ layer. By soaking nuts and seeds you can eliminate the acidic layer and toxins. Soaking also helps make nuts and seeds easier to digest. In turn, you get a more nutritionally powerfully dense food to your cells.

- Keep it simple, scoop out only what you’ll be using for the next day.
- Try it with all of your nuts and seeds.
