Want to incorporate more local, organic, nutrient-dense whole foods into your diet? Sprouts surely fit the bill as they provide an impressive range of nutritional health benefits. Sprouts are low in calories, low on the glycemic index, are high in fiber and loaded with vitamins and minerals.
Getting into the daily routine of sprouting takes very minimal effort and can be a fun, delicious and nutritional addition to any dietary lifestyle. This is also one of the easiest ways to get local organic greens into your diet without having to grow a garden (although I highly recommend gardening!)
Top 11 wonderful reasons why sprouts are so amazing:
- Sprouts grow in any climate at any time of the year. This is a great way to add raw foods during the colder winter months when fresh produce isn’t as readily available.
- Sprouts require minimal materials. I love the jar sprouting method, but I know others like bags or tray. There’s no soil required and no sunshine require until you ‘green’ the sprouts for a short period of time.
- You can grow sprouts indoors and they require a minimal amount of space.
- Sprouts are the ultimate local food so technically they reduce your carbon footprint.
- Sprouts require a minimal amount of time commitment: you only have to rinse sprouts in the morning and evening, and can easily be adopted it into your daily routine.
- Growing your own sprouts (or if you buy them organic) you’re assuring your getting organic produce and not consuming chemical sprays.
- Sprouts are get for any budget. They are extremely economical and have no waste in the growing process.
- Sprouts rival animal based food products because of the high nutritional value.
- Sprouts multiply in volume by at least 400% or more in 5 days or less.
- You can eat them only days after starting them. They mature very quickly in approximately 4-6 days.
- Growing sprouts allows you to connect with nature right from your own kitchen!
What to Sprout?
There are so many varieties of sprouting seeds that you can try. I love to sprout broccoli seeds, alfalfa, fenugreek and clover, but the list is endless. Check out sprout people’s guide to growing sprouts and all the different sprouts they have to offer.
My favorite thing about Sprouts = Pure Life Force
The aspect that I love most about sprouting is that it’s like eating pure vibrational life-force. Think about it; as you sprout a seed, you essentially activate its growth potential and unlock it’s inherent ability to grow into a plant. In the process we witness a seed’s capacity to totally transform into a completely new organism. This unlocked life-force then gets transferred to us as we assimilate this food into our bodies. This high vibrational frequency of energy supplied aids in our healing and the regeneration of our cells, boosting our overall frequency. Now that’s incredible!
Here’s to sprouting good health!
