I can't say that I have been here to tell you how great it is but fashioned of the teachings of Ann Wigmore, it has to be effective and educational.
I say give it a go, at least you don't have to fly to Pueto Rico to find out!

Nut is a hard shelled fruit of some plants that has an indehiscent seed. While a wide variety of dried seeds and fruits are called nuts in English, only a certain number of them are considered by biologists to be true nuts. Nuts are an important source of nutrients for both humans and wildlife.Nuts are a composite of the seed and the fruit, where the fruit does not open to release the seed. Most seeds come from fruits, and the seeds are free of the fruit, unlike nuts like hazelnuts, hickories, chestnuts and acorns, which have a stony fruit wall and originate from a compound ovary. Culinary usage of the term is less restrictive, and some nuts as defined in food preparation, like pistachios and Brazil nuts, are not nuts in a biological sense. Everyday common usage of the term often refers to any hard walled, edible kernel, as a nut.
My question was; can you sprout a walnut or a pecan or a macadamia... ?
I have seen almonds sprout but is it possible to have a pine nut start growing on you?
Well Nuts are indeed seeds but once treated for consumption most will not actually sprout, yes even raw nuts. When a nut comes from a tree it is wet and fibrous inside and very vibrant and viable. To eat them they are dried, mostly at below 100O F, but dried never the less. Are they dead? Not really, the enzymes and living force is still there but other conditions for germinating and sprouting have all but gone.
To get the skinny an all nuts (that we eat anyway) I am going to send you to my friend's website where all that typing has already been done.

The beta agonist ractopamine, a repartitioning agent that increases protein synthesis, was recruited for livestock use when researchers found the drug, used in asthma, made mice more muscular.
Ractopamine is started as the animal nears slaughter.
How does a drug marked, "Not for use in humans. Individuals with cardiovascular disease should exercise special caution to avoid exposure. Use protective clothing, impervious gloves, protective eye wear, and a NIOSH-approved dust mask" become "safe" in human food? With no washout period?
The drug is banned in Europe, Taiwan and China, and more than 1,700 people have been "poisoned" from eating pigs fed the drug since 1998, but ractopamine is used in 45 percent of U.S. pigs and 30 percent of ration-fed cattle.

So I just got this today from my friend on Facebook Chef Believe, evidently passed on from Vanessa Johansson http://www.meetup.com/slc-rawfood-superheroes-com/members/5900104/
As I never really trusted Sun Food and their over bloated prices this comes to my inbox. Please read and repost as much as possible.
I have been meaning to post this for a month now and finally have found a moment to do so.
As some of you know I have been investigating the raw cacao industry and raw powder and butter in particular. You heard it here first that basically every cacao product on the market today is actually cooked, and as of right now Essential Living Foods, Big Tree Organics and the paste from Ultimate Superfoods (not the powder) is actually a raw product.
Well, I have a grand finale to this story. After many conversations and emails I have discovered some important info about Sunfood, David Wolfes company.
First of all, it is not David Wolfes company.
As of at least 12 months ago, it has been owned by Doug Harbison, a non raw foodist non superhero cooked wonder bread old school business executive. David Wolfe makes no money off of Sunfood and owns no stock in Sunfood. He tried to get Sunfood off of cooked chocolate products and the owners would not listen to him. In fact, they have over 8 lawsuits against David Wolfe.
I spoke to the current owner of Sunfood...
