Some people roast nuts, some soak them

What about doing both? Does anyone soak nuts, dehydrate them, AND THEN also roast them? Roasted nuts taste way better to me, but soaking nuts is way healthier. What about doing both? Soak them but then toast them?

Segregating heavy phytate foods from heavy zinc foods would be advisable, but a high phytate food like almonds is still a great source of bioavailable magnesium.

I don't have that feedback system where I can sense a particular food doing that to me. I notice Paleo overall is 100X better than eating carbs and sugar, so I'm either not paying attention or just not that sensitive to un-soaked nuts. I'll try soaking a batch for kicks. I do enjoy roasted walnuts with curry powder and bacon fat or coconut oil.

n=1 here, but for me I definitely notice that unsoaked nuts zap my energy to a degree, whereas soaked ones don't. If I eat a lot of unsoaked nuts, pretty soon I'm lying on the floor looking at my phone, then all I want to do is sleep. But soaked nuts? My energy levels stay the same.

I soak them, then sometimes roast them to dehydrate them. First time was accidental, but it was a tasty accident.

Sounds like a reasonable plan. However I don't bother with the soak part, Phytates be damned I'm doing the best I can with many areas of nutrition and I just can't do the soaking thing. btw I spent some time researching Phytates on the internet and found very little real evidence supporting it being bad or good. Always looking for proof on it.
