Hi Phil,
I get the phytic acid and mineral malabsorption, but what and how are nuts and seeds a strain on the digestive system.
Does grinding the nuts into a flour help?
I eat lots of almond flour muffins and waffle and I don't have any stomach discomfort etc.
What do the nuts do to your digestive system?

Hi these un soaked contain enzyme inhibitors. So when you try to digest them your body has a difficult time it may not be like meat sitting heavy because that needs lots of acid. But they do need quite a bit of work from enzymes. I believe if they are soaked or *cooked* these are broken down. I highlight cooked because I am not 100% on that one. The enzyme inhibitors are there to put of predators and to preserve the seed so months or years. This is why some people just get nuts and seeds going through them and people say they are hard to digest but its not quite like meat. I would honestly be careful eating lots though, you may end up with issues of copper building up in organs like the liver and brain. Have a read of this and keep an eye out for future symptoms if you don't have them already.

Thanks for shedding some more light Phil. I am getting a little frustrated. Almost every time I find a new starch free food that I love and think that it is going to be a great addition... something turns out to be not so great.

I've used raw almonds that are already peeled and chopped from whole foods. I soaked them over night with 1 T. grey sea salt and then drained them and dried them in the oven, for about 2 hours at I think 150 - 200 degrees, but check every 1/2 hour to be sure. They came out golden and had a very intense salt flavor from the soaking, which I like.
