How and Why to Soak Nuts [Video]

Hi, I’m Dr. Tom Rofrano and today I’m going to show you how easy it is to soak a variety of nuts and why you even bother doing it.

Three Reasons to Soak Nuts

First of all, nuts, although they taste great, they are covered with fungus. Yes, that’s right. I mean they’re stored in these large bins for weeks or months at a time, and they can accumulate a lot of fungus, mold. And therefore, by soaking nuts, you’re washing off, rinsing off a good portion of the mold and fungus that’s on the nuts. That’s number one.

Two, they also fumigate most nuts with pesticides with less on organic. However, other nuts are fumigated with sometimes very toxic chemicals. So it’s another reason why you want to soak nuts.

And thirdly, it makes them much more digestible and absorbable. And if you do it right, they actually taste better, believe it or not. So we’re going to show you that now.

How to Soak Nuts

I put these in the water this morning. Let me show you, these are some pecans right here. So let me show you with the water, they’re looking like, this is just, okay. So yes, this is what, look at this. Now, this is what you would be eating, if you don’t soak these. Yes, all this crud in here. I don’t have a microscope right now, but it’s probably covered, loaded with mold.

And let’s see about the walnuts in here. I put these in early this morning. Yes, look how disgusting that is. Do you want to drink that? I don’t think so. This is what you’re eating if you’re not soaking the nuts. And what else do we have here? Almonds. Look at how cloudy that water is. So we’re going to see what this looks like. Oh my gosh. Yes, it’s just loaded with fungus. I’d imagine.

So anyway, I think you want to avoid all that, and instead you just put the nuts in something like this glass jar, mason jar, jar like this. Here’s a bag of raw walnuts, pour in like this, but three quarters in the way out, not all the way up because the nuts overflow. Then add some filtered water like that. Put the water almost to the top, and you just put the top on and put in the refrigerator, and that’s it.

You can put some salt in there if you want. You keep them in there overnight, and the next morning you rinse the water off like I did here. So let me just show you all rinse this off like it is the next day. I’m going to pour this out. Okay, so now I’ll, take a handful of what I’m going to eat right in there and then when I’m done with that, I’ll pour some filtered water back in and put it back in the refrigerator, and that’s it. It’s very very simple.

Nuts Taste Better

Other than that, so some of these nuts actually taste better. So like walnuts, the bitterness just goes away. I mean it’s amazing how much better they taste, the same thing with almonds. Some nuts, people just don’t like them. So they don’t like the taste. So in that case what you could do is put them in a dehydrator if you have one, on 120 degrees for 24 to 48 hours, or in an oven.

I’m sure almost everyone has an oven, and it’s very simple. You could heat them at 200 degrees for two hours, and this is one way to do it. You can even sprinkle some salt over the nuts, and they taste great. And when you do that they travel really well, because they’re not wet. And yeah, they taste great. So either way, that is another option to put them in the oven or dehydrator.

And that is our tip of the day. If you would like any more health tips you could just visit me, just share your information with us. I’d be happy to give you the latest updates on health tips as we go along.

    My health had been declining over the last 5 years. I have consulted with no less than 6 naturopaths. Non of which was able to help me regain my health. After more recent lab tests my Feritin level had skyrocketed at... which point now I was worried. Every one I spoke to said the only option was to do leeching (where they draw out your blood periodically). That did not sound like an option. Then I found Dr Rofrano. To be honest I was extremely skeptical as I have spend lots of money and time with other naturopaths only to end up right back at the beginning. However I had nothing to loose (other than $$$) I decided to give him one try before I competely gave up. I can say I am 100% happy!!!... After an in-depth consultation, and extensive testing. Many deficiencies were uncovered not to mention, sensitivities, thyroid, hormones, high cholesterol the list goes on and on. We began a supplement regiment to get things back on track. Its now 6 weeks later. My labs have significantly improved, my cholesterol is now in normal range, my feritin level has significantly dropped and I am feeling a lot better. Its still early and my body has more healing to do. I am ecstatic to say we are on the right track. My labs have never looked better. If you are just not feeling well and really need to find a solution would highly recommend you contact the Natural Medicine Clinic and speak to Dr Tom Rofrano.. you will NOT be dissapointed.read more

    Stay away. Extremely expensive for results. All they want to do is throw pills at you for thousands of dollars.. Not worth the money.Find someone who takes an interest in your health not your wallet.
