Soak Your Seeds and Grains for Better Digestion & Nutrition
Article: Why You Should Be Eating More Overnight Oats, According to Science.
Linked is great little article (and recipe) by Tori Robinson, on www.mindbodygreen.com, that reminds me of the recipes I have used post fasting to better digest and get more nutritive value out of oats.
The article focuses on the nutritive benefits of oats, and how soaking them overnight allows you to get far more of the benefits, however I have found that the same applies soaking grains/sees such as buckwheat kernels or brown rice overnight also.
As discussed, soaking is not new. I learned it from a Russian practitioner using traditional methods carried down over many years.
The recipe I was taught involves using 1 part (1/2-1 cup) of oats/buckwheat kernels/brown rice and parts of water, bringing it to the boil, then turning the heat off, putting the lid on, and wrap with newspaper and a towel and leave overnight. In the morning add fresh fruit, yoghurt, cinnamon, fresh nuts and seeds (these can also be soaked overnight) etc.
These recipes are fantastic following a fast or for an easy and quick breakfast any time.
