 Soaking Quiona

Soaking your Quinoa.

Now I will be honest. I didn't even know about this till my mom sent me "The Crushing Cancer Kitchen" blog post.
According Dana, by soaking your quinoa for 12-24hrs before cooking it "It releases the phytic acid (an anti-nutrient found in grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, that binds to and can prevent us from absorbing the nutrients) and activates the phytase (an enzyme that helps them to digest)."

I don't know about your but I'd like some healthy enzymes in my food :)

All you do is fill a container of your choice with quinoa and twice the amount of water (Ex: 1 cup of quinoa = 2 cups of water). Then add a splash of apple cider vinegar and viola!


I dont do this all that time. I forget to do it a lot. However, when I do I can tell the quinoa is a lot fluffier then normal and I feel good knowing I'm getting more out of my food by planing ahead.

Are you going to start soaking your quinoa readers?? 
I sure am.. when I can remember ;)
