Help me remember this

Nutrition basics: soaking  posted in Nutrition

Beans need to be soaked before cooking.

Soak nuts, and seeds too, if you can.

Soaking nuts helps with digestion. Works the same way as for legumes or beans.

Things that the seeds need to protect themselves are released in the water, which we discard. Other nutrients become available and are easier digested.

A brief 20-30 minute soak is enough, and even 5 minutes is better than none.

About AIice

The thing is, human memory is limited. When I read, I write down things that are important for me, or might come useful later. Notes do help me remember.

AIice2 is a place for sharing what I've hoarded. Each post usually is a simple list of short notes. It also makes sense to save a reference, a source I'm quoting, so I try to keep a few. That's how my second memory works.

So, I hope, you're finding it useful, too. If you'd like to see what comes next, please subscribe for updates. Send me an email if you need to reach me today.
