A simpler Ayurvedic breakfast for those without much time is just a cup of soaked
raisins, figs and apricots with some almonds and walnuts. You can also place
these ingredients in a flatbread with your favorite jam for a to-go breakfast wrap.
Soaking nuts and dried fruits serves two purposes: it increases their digestibility
and brings out their sweetness. In addition, soaking almonds allows you remove
the skins, which are mildly poisonous.
