Wondering why soaked grains?
Wondering if it is worth the time?
Wondering how to do it?
Awhile ago I wrote a post highlighting the nutritional benefits of soaking your own grains.
Basically, grains (and nuts) contain phytates that interfere with digestion, therefore limiting the amount of nutrients that your body can absorb.
By soaking grains in an acidic medium, you can counteract some of these issues and boost the nutrition of the foods that you eat. You can read more (lots more) about phytates Amanda Rose’s website, Phytic Acid. There, you can learn about other methods of improving the nutritional quality of foods that you eat.
Now, I know that this might seem a bit intimidating to some of you–and it’s a bit intimidating to me too, actually. It is hard for me to always remember that I need get my grains out early so that I can soak them. Basically, there really isn’t an extra step involved–it just means that you need to plan ahead a bit.
And like I have said over and over again—I am not a purist. A lot of the time I don’t soak my grains because I just plain forget. And actually, right now, for some reason, the soaked grains haven’t been working for me, so I am taking a little time off of them and hope to reintroduce them again in the near future.
And also, even if you don’t want to soak your grains right now, there are some great recipes in this book. And you can just reverse engineer them to make them just like you make regular baked goods.
To do this, just mix all of the dry ingredients together, mix wet ingredients, add wets to dries and proceed with the recipe instructions.
So, have I whetted (pun intended) your appetite enough?
