Ah, garlicky goodness! As a flavoring, garlic tastes amazing with raw, sprouted nuts. It takes the edge off the nuttiness, and gives you a satisfying, deep taste. In particular, these Rosemary Garlic Pistachios & Almonds by Living Intentions are superlative. High in healthy proteins and fats, and low in sugar, these are a perfect snack for primal outdoors enthusiasts or cross-fit buffs to use in snacking after a great workout. You will feel both healthy, and virtuous, and satisfied. Your waist-band or belt will love you for eating this snack, too – all the ingredients are super-healthy.
You will find these snacks “love at first bite.” The rosemary, in particular, is more of a subtle presence, but it’s undeniably there, in the form of essential oils. To me, rosemary always smells incredible, and indeed, rosemary is one of the healthiest spices known to mankind. There are indicators that rosemary can help prevent cancer, improve memory, elevate your mood, help with migraines, relieve pain, help reduce inflammation, boost your immune system – well, the list goes on and on. Admittedly, you might need to eat a lot of bags of these nuts to get enough rosemary to relieve a migraine – you might be better off, in fact, growing some rosemary of your own – but every little bit helps!
Simple organic ingredients, impeccably sourced. So you get all the alive nourishment possible, and no badness whatsoever.
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.
We love this company. Everything that they make is absolutely mindblowingly delicious. It’s rare to find a company so committed to doing everything right on every level — while focusing first on the most important aspect of food: amazing taste. This is not your hippie grandmother’s nut & seed cluster. This stuff is as good as the junkiest junk food that you love to snack on, but without the junk.
