SPROUTS – Tiny Explosions of Taste and Nutrition
I have loved sprouts since the first time I scooped them off the salad bar into my plate. later enjoying them in stir fry and other meals.
Then I read about sprouting seeds in a jar and eating the young sprouts, seeds and roots. At that time I learned that there are dozens of seeds and plants available for sprouting and eating- all are economical sources of nutrient rich food.
Many of the “sprouts” have a greater nutritional impact- bang for the buck- many have a different impact. All are fun because you can grow and watch them form AND then eat them.
Many can be used in smoothies or juice(especially wheatgrass/barley grass) and they have a great nutrient impact.
Add a few baskets and trays and jars for a full rotating crop of greens and beans and other young veggies to keep you well fed and entertained.
