Soak your nuts

My Mother Says that it is important to soak your nuts. Why? Because soaking helps to get rid of phytic acid . By soaking you make digestion of nuts easier meanwhile improving absorption of vitamins and other nutrients in the nuts. Adding a little salt while soaking will help neutralize the enzymes.
