Nature is perfect because within each plant fruit and seed it holds the enzymes that our bodies need to digest them. When foods are cooked above 43 degrees, the enzymes are destroyed, thus rendering the food as “dead”.
Our bodies have to generate their own enzymes to break down the food. This has a degenerative effect over time, as the body is compromising its energy to function because it has to produce the enzymes that have been destroyed through heating. Silly! Why would be want to make more work for our bodies? Especially because they are already under stress from our modern fast paced lifestyle.
Heating foods, also destroys a portion of the vitamin and mineral content in food. We want to nurture our bodies with the most nutrient dense, simple clean food. Similar to putting the best petrol in a car. It runs more efficiently, over longer periods of time with less damage and breakdown(oxidation).
Sprouted foods are foods that have first been activated, with the essential life giving element of water. They come to life, releasing all the anti-nutrients that were protecting and preserving the seed. These compounds are the cause of “gas” from eating un-soaked legumes. They also inhibit the bodies ability to digest and absorb vital nutrients found in the seeds. Simply put, sprouting makes seeds(of all kinds) easier to digest, and assimilate. They also help the body in a number of other ways. Sprouts are oxygen rich, which make them a naturally rich source of anti-oxidants.
Dehydrating is a process of preserving by removing all moisture. This keeps the food from spoiling. We dehydrate our goods at low temperatures so that they are alive and full of essential nutrients and enzymes. Our gentle dehydration process takes 24-48 hours, so each bag of crackers and granola is lovingly crafted, from start to finish over 5 days!
