Ooops! Should have included the link!I simply soak about 4 cups of nuts in filtered water with 1 TBS of sea salt overnight. The next morning, I put them on the lowest setting in the oven or in a dehydrator for several hours ( about 8) until crispy!

I read that it is advisable not to eat grains because they can damage our digestive system, and sometimes people get troubles with the pancreas

How do you eat grain free without losing weight. I am underweight and need to gain some, but I don't know if I can get enough calories in.

Hi Anonymous,

That's certainly a valid concern if you are underweight, in which case I would recommend being grain-free but eating fruit and more starchy veggies, such a sweet potatoes, etc. However, it's very important to address the underlying causes of being underweight (which can be physiological problems such as malabsorption, enzyme deficiencies, heavy metal toxicities, etc.) I deal with these issues in my practice, www.NWHolisticNutrition.com if you would like more information.

Best wishes,
Carrie
