Soaking almonds in filtered water is said to improve the digest-ability of the almonds so that our bodies can readily absorb all the wonderful vitamins and minerals found in these sacred morsels. One site I found says "Almonds are loaded with vitamin E, magnesium and potassium and are a good source of manganese, copper and vitamin B2 (riboflavin). They are also high in fiber and a small serving has more protein than an egg." Click the following for more info on Almonds: Almond-1, Almond-2.
How to Soak Almonds:
Place a small handful of raw, organic almonds (10-15) in a glass or stainless steal bowl/container. Cover with water. Let soak for 12-24 hours; If you decided to soak for 24 hours, change the water after 12 hours. Once finished soaking, drain, rinse and use. If you want to store the almonds, store them drained in the refrigerator.
Add soaked almonds to smoothies/shakes
Eat as snack (add a little Bragg's Liquid Aminos or other flavoring of your choice)
Add to salads
Add to cereal
