How to Soak Nuts & Seeds

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.


I soak them overnight in alkaline water. Alkaline water helps neutralize the acid.
*For this photo, I used mung beans, millet and almonds.

Sometimes the outer layer of the almonds falls off; you can see why they would be easier to digest.

Beastly Tips:

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