Sprouting

If you are interested having in a healthy, natural diet, you’ll really benefit from learning about sprouts. Sprouting is a really easy, quick and cheap way to get extremely nutritious raw food.

You just take some seeds or beans, soak them for the required time, empty out the water then rinse them every few hours to keep them clean. After a day or two they’ll start to grow. With beans, you can eat them at the first sign of a root, with seeds it’s best to wait until the very first leaves appear. Eating these newborn plants gives you a massive dose of vitamins, enzymes and a whole load of good stuff, more than an older plant, as this is the stage where it needs the maximum amount of energy and nutrients to start growing. It hardly takes any time or effort at all, buying these seeds and beans is very cheap, and it adds variety and colour to your diet. There are so many to choose from. Here are some you may be interested in.

– Broccoli. Broccoli sprouts are amazing for the immune system with really high levels of antioxidants. They have even been shown in scientific studies to shrink cancer tumours!

– Mung beans. These have potassium, iron and amino acids plus are rich in vitamins A, C and E. They are cleansing and have a fresh, delicate taste.

– White radish seeds. They help to clear congestion and help the digestive system and the kidneys. They are also rich in potassium, vitamin C and chorophyll.

I really recommend checking out my personal favourite sprouting company here: https://www.livingfood.co.uk You will find more information on their website and you can order sprouting kits and organic seeds and beans from them. It’s where I get my sprouts from and I’m very happy with the quality and service.

Let me know if you grow your own sprouts! What do you like to grow, and what do you eat them with?
