How are nuts to be prepared?

I have organic raw almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.

How do I sprout them? Is it necessary to sprout them?

My opinion:

-Necessary? There are no raw food police. Many feel that soaking them makes them healthier. I've tried them just about every way. I DO think soaking them is a little healthier and easier to digest.

-You can certainly do the research and decide for yourself the amount and types of nuts you think are healthiest - and to what degree you want to soak / sprout them.

-I definitely had the most luck with sprouted shell-less sunflower seeds. Very good when sprouted....or grown into sunflower greens in soil or vermiculite.

-Rock on!

Are nuts sprouted the same way that beans are sprouted? I have not tried sprouting any nuts before. I bet they are delicious. Can any nut be sprouted?

Well:

-Small seeds (like sunflower seeds) are great because you can actually see them form a plant.

-Almonds and other nuts really just soak up water.

So:

Not every nut 'sprouts'. Some merely.....uh...swell. Heh..heh...

There's a great sprouting guide on this site here:

I've printed it out and posted it in my kitchen to help remind me of some of the best practices.
