Sprouts are the ultimate homegrown food!
Sprouting seeds always makes me feel like spring is near.
It is a super easy way to add "live foods" to you diet.
-Growing them yourself allows you to make sure that they are clean, fresh, have the most nutrients and have not been sitting on a shelf in a store.
-Sprouts take only 3-5 days depending on the type.
-Sprouting is very inexpensive. 1-2 tablespoons is all you need to fill a jar once they sprout.
-Sprouting enhances the nutritional value of seeds. It increases the level of minerals and vitamins including vitamin D, and antioxidants.
-It makes these healthy foods easier to digest as most gas producing starches are eliminated by sprouting.
-The living enzymes enhance metabolism as well.
This website has a great tutorial on how to sprout.
