John Sigona’s Pick of the Week: Gourmet Sprouted Almonds

A Live Food!

Sprouted Gourmet Almonds

with Himalayan Sea Salt

Special Introductory Price: $2.99

A brand new item! Healthier and better tasting, easier to chew and digest than our “regular” raw almonds…I’m really excited about this new incredible item…and you will be too!

An absolute must try—I’ve hooked up with a small farm that has created a family formula which produces an awesome, all-natural and gourmet Sprouted Almond that is distinctively unique, crunchy, naturally very healthy and satisfying.

Wondering what this “sprouted” business means? Live Sprouted Almonds from California have exceptional nutritional value locked inside each kernel, because sprouting enlivens the enzymes that are dormant within. The basics: raw almonds are soaked for 24 hours in water and a bit of salt, causing the nuts to begin germinating. They’re then dried at a very low temperature to preserve all nutritional value. Contact with water “awakens” the nut, so Sprouted Almonds contain concentrated vital energy and nutrition…Sprouting neutralizes enzyme inhibitors present in the nut, allowing quicker and more complete digestion and assimilation of nutrients.

Sprouted and unique formula…that’s the key…the “secret” to this very special healthy nut…and…they’re lightly sprinkled with unrefined Himalayan sea salt…go online and punch in “Himalayan Sea Salt” and discover how amazingly healthy this salt is!
