If you have never eaten sprouts….you are MISSING something.
Over at sproutpeople.org have THIS to say:
“Sprouts are a powerhouse of nutrition.
Sprouts have been grown by many civilizations over the past 5,000 years.
The Marvel of Sprouts!
Research shows that sprouts are a veritable fountain of youth. Sprouts abound with antioxidants, they are full of protein, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Broccoli sprouts have been found to contain 50 times as much of the antioxidant sulfurophane as mature broccoli. Wheat Grass juice is the closest substance to hemoglobin, and is therefore a phenomenal blood purifier and liver de-toxifier. Sprouts contain enzymes, giving your body a much needed rest as they digest themselves - invigorating you while requiring no help from your body to process them. New research indicates that peanut sprouts reduce harmful cholesterol and that sunflower, buckwheat and grain sprouts dramatically improve the quality of life for diabetics. The list goes on and on.”
We have been growing our own sprouts for a while.
Jay made this nifty sprout shelf and we went to town.
They grow so EASILY and require only water and about 4-5 days.
First: you SOAK them overnight . EASY.
Then…the only thing you do is rinse them 1X per day…And then…in 4-5 days.
Soon enough…they are ready to eat.
you can use them in anything.
POWER FOOD…and the kids will eat them. sometimes.
either way…they are an easy way to get your vitimins.
