People rag on grains for being difficult to digest - and they are - but nuts and seeds are even more difficult to digest. They're IMO the absolute worst. That's not to say I never eat nuts - I do here and there - but seeds like flax, chia, hemp...I can't understand why anyone would eat them. They're bad for you and taste terrible. It's just inflammatory stuff.
    This is why a lot of raw vegans soak or sprout their nuts and seeds as this is meant to neutralise a lot of the bad stuff. Obviously there are the PUFAs still to deal with but at least the digestive issues seem (for me at least) to be dealt with.
