Raw Honey– Antioxidants, Enzymes, and Minerals
This next recipe is very easy to make and goes great with some hot tea. It’s a take on the traditional Moroccan dates recipe, made more bioavailable with our sprouted almonds. Why sprouted? Sprouting removes the phytic acid that is naturally found in the outer layer of the nut. This phytic acid binds with minerals present in the nuts and prevents their absorption. Nuts also have high amounts of enzyme inhibitors which makes them difficult to digest. Sprouting breaks down the phytic acid and neutralizes the enzymes, thus improving mineral absorption and making them easier to digest!
