Do small seeds digest better than nuts and bigger seeds?
Usually with nuts and pumpkin seeds, I soak them. And it usually takes me a couple of hours to take the outer layer of the nuts off before I eat them all.

I think that it just depends on the seed or nut. From what I gather from most people on this board, the general idea is that you should soak all nuts and seeds to help aide in digestion. Especially if you are sensitive. For example, some people can not eat raw pumpkin seeds, even if soaked as it causes stomach pain and they do not digest properly, I however, can eat them soaked just fine.
Also, as to the smaller seeds digesting better, size doesn't matter here ;)
For example, even if you soak whole flax seeds, they are unlikely to fully digest. It just depends on the cellular casing on the seed.
