  • Did Grok soak his nuts?

    Mjellow!
    Did grok really take the time to soak her gathered almonds for 12 hours in a bowl of water before eating them? If nut (har har) then why should I bother doing it..? I don't eat them often now, so do you think it will be safe to eat them raw without soaking?

        Depends on which Grok. Soaking + sun dehydration is a practice from Mesoamerica if I recall. Of course the effect of phytic acid and enzyme disruptors will depend on how often you eat them.

        I'll do a ~3 lb. batch of mixed nuts once or twice a year. Preparing and freezing them really doesn't take effort, just a little planning. I would rather do this than take chances with small packages here and there because so many of them are rancid.

                    I think I'll just do a set of deadlifts instead.

                      Soaking them in piranha infested water works even better for that...

                        If 'Grok' was living near water, I think it's save to assume that he did soak his nuts most of the time.

                          Let's all go soak our nuts. Should clarify our thinking.

                            Ha! But she did have to remove them from the shell in order to eat them. She couldn't just pop a handful into her mouth. (Mmm, a mouthful of nuts.) And nut flour? Who has time for that?

                              Other way around, mate! Lots o' hot water. Used to be that they recommended soaking in hot baths daily as a birth control method.

                              On a more serious note, I have wondered all about this "ancestral" style grains and whatnot, with the soaking and sprouting. My guess is that it would happen in wetter seasons when roofs leak, but probably not all that often.

                              Could be wrong, though.
