They Said What?!
So there is heaps of buzz about activated almonds at the moment. The buzz was created by the Article My Day on a Plate in the Sunday Life where chef and Weight Watchers Ambassador Pete Evans gave the following break down if his diet.
7am – Two glasses of alkalized water with apple cider vinegar, then a smoothie of blended alkalized water, organic spirulina, activated almonds, maca, blueberries, stevia, coconut kefir and two organic, free-range eggs.
8:30am - Sprouted millet, sorghum, chia and buckwheat bread with liver pate, avocado, cultured vegetables, plus ginger and liquorice root tea
12:30pm - Fresh fish, sautéed kale and broccoli, spinach and avocado salad, cultured vegies.
3pm - Activated almonds, coconut chips, cacao nibs plus
6:30pm - Emu meatballs, sautéed vegies, cultured vegetables plus a cup of ginger and liquorice root tea
Now to the common person who really could care about their food too much as long as its delicious quick and easy alot of these foods would seem completely alternative (read crazy) and I have to admit even emu meatballs is too far for this little dietitian but alot of the other foods ie. activated almonds, alkalised water, apple cider vinegar and cultured veggies are all really common in health food and organic stores.
So here is the lo down on what really got the hype... ACTIVATED ALMONDS (!!!) They are normal almonds that have been soaked in alkaline water and Celtic salt and then dehydrated slowly to protect all the vitamins, nutrients, minerals and enzymes whilst re-establishing their crunch.
