Nuts and seeds contain good-quality protein and fats. Soak raw nuts and seeds in clean water to achieve full nutritional value.

WalnutsNuts and seeds play a role in disease prevention by keeping you healthy as you age. They have an abundance of protein, fiber, essential amino acids, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. Nuts are high in essential amino acids and healthy fats. Eating one ounce of nuts daily can reduce your risk of heart disease.

Type AB’s should eat nuts and seeds in small amounts and with caution. Although nuts and seeds and products made from them can be a good supplementary protein source, all seeds contain insulin-inhibiting lectins.

Eating nuts and seeds, even when roasted, can be very healthy. The best way to consume nuts and seeds is raw after soaking them in clean water for a few hours. Soaking stimulates the process of germination, which increases the vitamin C, B, and carotenes (pre-vitamin A) content. It may also neutralize phytic acid, a substance present in grain and seed bran that can inhibit absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, and zinc. Raw nuts and seeds also contain enzyme inhibitors that are neutralized by germination.
