Sprouted Nuts and Whole Foods for a Healthier Holiday!

Sprouting for the Holidays!

Sprouted raw (not processed they will not sprout) nuts are easy on the digestive system.

I take my nuts and flax seeds to soak up to 6 hours some overnight depending on the nut.  Then I will dehydrate them to make them crispy and flavor them with seasonings such as chip tole spicy seasonings or cinnamon nutmeg mixture this year I plan to add cinnamon bark essential oil in one of the recipes. The flax seeds I will mix in Vitamix with seasonings and make nice flax crackers.  Great way to get fiber and omega 3.  This makes for a healthy holiday snack.

After soaking the Flax seeds will be like a Gel.  Blend in the Vita Mix or high speed blender 1/2 of the mixture then add the other half before dehydrating.

After blending add your seasonings and spices to your taste!  You will notice in the pictures below mine is “green” it is because I added the pulp from my morning juice to it.  Just more nutrients to put in my body instead of the trash!

After soaking just setting in the sun for an hour before putting into the dehydrator – taking in some good ole sunshine!

When I made up spices for each of the nuts I tried to be creative – one batch I used coconut sugar, ceylon cinnamon and sea salt.  I first whipped two egg whites and put the nuts in that mixture then added spices before dehydrating.
