I love almonds. I eat more and less 8 to 12 almonds per day. I soak it for 8 hours in water with lemon juice to kill any mold. Is that healthy?April 15, 2013 at 4:30 am #102848

I’m not sure if you can remove the mold off nuts or if it even matters. I’m not totally convinced that mold can feed candida. However the thing to be concerned with nuts is that they are hard to digest. So soaking and dehydrating is recommended. Here’s a link to they way I do it. Crispy/dehydrated/soaked nuts fresh and warm right out of the oven is one of the best treats I can have on my diet.April 15, 2013 at 9:33 am #102856

It is very beneficial to soak your almonds as it reduces phytic acid which makes them harder to digest.
Best way to soak is put the almonds into a jar that will hold twice the volume of the almonds (they will swell to twice their size). Cover the nuts with warm water & let them soak for 12 hours. Empty the water out, add one teaspoon of salt per quart of almonds (presoaked weight). Fill with warm water again & let soak for another 8 hours. Rinse, drain & then dehydrate in your oven on the lowest setting until they have dried out. Then you can either eat them raw of roast them.

I agree with Mrs Candida. I went about 3 months into the diet without eating any almonds. I decided to give them a try as I love them as well. I soaked them for 12 hours and then baked them, but I also have trouble digesting them.
At this point, I personally am opting to avoid them. If you are only eating 8-12 per day it might not be that much of an issue.
