This recipe is also from FMTV 21-day program. It's vegan, and gluten free. Make sure you buy your nuts and seeds raw. There's a good selection of raw nuts and seeds at health food stores like Pomme Natural and Charlie Brown Health Foods in Nanaimo. Also don't overlook Bulk Barn. They have raw sunflower and pumpkin seeds and also coconut without sulfites. Sulfites are used to dry food and retain their natural color. This is a highly food sensitive additive and can cause severe allergic reactions. This stuff is often found in dried fruit and they don't need to write it on the label so always look for sulfite free on the label when buying these types of products.

Why it's good for you.
Nuts are high in protein and a great source of healthy fats. Soaking or 'activating' increases the nutrient value of the nuts along with breaking down the problematic compounds to help enhance their digestibility. Enjoy this energizing breakfast; thanks to the mix of protein, healthy fats and delicious natural sweetener! *Soak nuts and seeds the night before you plan on preparing this recipe.
