Whoa, Pure Jeevan's Back?!

2016 update: Aha, you noticed?! Welcome. Yes, we wanted to bring the site back online again, mainly because it's so packed with articles and information. It will be a work in progress for some time, as we changed web platforms and all sorts of tech stuff. So, a lot of links are hard-coded to old Wordpress-style links... just awful. But, in time we'll get all of it back in shape. For now, enjoy clicking around and reading!

Last time on Raw Foods 101 we answered the question, "Why should you soak nuts / seeds before eating them."? Naturally, many readers then asked the next logical question, "How LONG should I soak them before eating " Great question!

Don't forget:? You're soaking the nuts and seeds to "wake them up" as would happen in nature. When seeds are soaked in the springtime rain, they wake up and begin to sprout. When this happens, the nutritional content of the nuts and seeds changes (they become an even greater powerhouse of nutrients).

Be sure to soak nuts and seeds in purified water, and thoroughly rinse after soaking.? Below is a basic chart that covers most nuts and seeds.Make sure that you are purchasing raw, unroasted, unsalted nuts and seeds (organic is best, of course). Enjoy!

We have a large list of upcoming topics for the Raw Foods 101 series. However, if there is something specific that you would like us to cover, please let us know in the comments and we'll be sure to include it in an upcoming post.
