How to Sprout Almonds

Why do we need to sprout the almonds? Almonds are difficult to digest because of an enzyme-inhibiting substance in their brown coating. These enzyme inhibitors protect the nut or seed until it has, what it needs for growth. Soaking Almonds overnight removes these toxic enzyme inhibitors so that the enzymes secreted during digestion can do their job, also the gluten breaks down and digestion becomes much easier. Phytic acid which inhibits absorption of vital minerals is also reduced after soaking Almonds. This helps our body get the benefits of vitality contained within them. (Source:Buzzle)

Once the Almonds starts sprouting it has more life force or prana in it. Therefore, it's more sattvic when it's sprouting. Apart from increase in the nutrients, sprouted almonds taste great too.

Sprouted Almond's Milk

Almonds are my favourite. Mom used to soak the almonds every night and made sure that all of us had a few almonds every morning. As a kid I believed those almonds would help me get better scores in tests, which of course seemed a better and yummy way, than to actually sit and study. Almonds are known to boost memory if you do bother to study. :)
