Did you know that sprouts are extremely nutritious for you?  If you’re like me – you probably didn’t grow up eating sprouts and boy did we miss out!  (if you did your parents were way ahead of the curve and I give them props!) 

Sprouts are soaked and germinated seeds, nuts or grains.  Sprouting grains, nuts, beans and legumes makes them more easily digestible and the best part is sprouting is EASY and can be done at home on your kitchen counter!

The different kinds of sprouts: 

  • alfalfa 
  • broccoli sprouts
  • lentil sprouts 
  • radish sprouts
  • mung bean sprouts 
  • pumpkin seed sprouts
  • chia seed sprouts
  • flax seed sprouts

Even though sprouts are low in calories, they are RICH in nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.  The sprouting process has been shown to INCREASE nutrient levels.  Sprouts are richer in protein, magnesium, vitamins C & K, phosphorus and manganese than un-sprouted veggies. 

Sprouts have been shown to improve: 

  • digestion
  • blood sugar levels (which will help you control your appetite) 
  • heart health 
  • and more!

*Because of the climate sprouts are grown in they can at times carry more harmful bacteria so for young children, pregnant women, elderly, or those with comprised immune systems please cook sprouts thoroughly or avoid them completely.  

How you can incorporate sprouts into your diet: 

  • on toast
  • as a garnish on salads, bowls, or soups
  • blended into a smoothie
