Coconut has been used by many cultures worldwide for thousands of years, and is well known for its many amazing properties. Coconut is so nutritious, its list of benefits reads like a patent medicine bottle. Many people eat several tablespoons of coconut oil daily, for the incredible host of benefits it confers. It’s full of health-boosting lauric acid and medium-chain triglycerides, and it’s been shown to:
Sesame seeds have been used for thousands of years for culinary and health-enhancing purposes. Their nutritional profile is a powerful one. They’re a great source of dietary protein, healthy fats, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
We added lemon oil to our Super Cookies to make them burst with flavor, but this fragrant oil also has many unsung health benefits, including reducing stress, fever, infections, asthma, insomnia and more.
Dates are vitamin and mineral-rich — they’re particularly high in iron and vitamin K.
Food in its raw natural state contains essential enzymes, vitamins and minerals compromised during high-heat processing. All in all, raw foods are just plain good for you. The low-heat processing protects and preserves the good stuff.
Soaking and sprouting are ancient techniques, developed by our wise ancestors to make certain foods, like nuts, seeds and grains, more nutritious and easier to digest. These foods evolved chemical defense mechanisms to protect themselves until the proper growing conditions came about — enough moisture to help them burgeon into sprouts. Most nuts, seeds, and grains simply aren’t easily digested unless they’re soaked for a while, to awaken the mechanisms that say, “Hey, time to sprout!” and unleash an amazing series of biochemical transformations. The soaking and sprouting process brings natural resting enzymes to life, increasing bioavailable nutrients. Increased nutrients and live enzymes aid digestion and strengthen the body’s natural healing process, increasing vital energy and wellness. The soaking and sprouting process also minimizes or eliminates nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances such as enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins), and goitrogens. We recommend soaking and sprouting any nuts, seeds and grains that you plan to eat (unless someone else has already done it for you). The soak/sprout/dehydration process takes a bit of planning ahead (and a dehydrator), but it’s well worth it for the health benefits it confers. It also makes nuts and seeds taste amazing — extra-buttery and satisfyingly crispy-crunchy.
