I remember years ago when my kids were young sprouting seeds which I would put in salads, sandwich fillings, casseroles, etc. We had the jars with the mesh lid and the tiered sprouting trays. I tried and used them all.
When my youngest was little, I used to fill up a cup with mung beans for his snack. He thought they were awesome – fresh, crunchy and filling. I didn’t tell him they were healthy. Why ruin a good thing.
For a while, no one seemed to be doing this anymore. You could buy sprouts in the superstores but they definitely are not as fresh and tasty as the ones I sprouted at home. And, it was so easy.
Sprouts are a wonderful, healthy, versatile and nutritious food that fights cancer. It’s easy, inexpensive and something your children could do as a learning experience. How about trying these organic sprouting seeds – alfalfa, barley grass, broccoli, buckwheat, French lentil, mung bean, radish, red clover, sunflower, sweet green pea and wheatgrass. The sky is the limit.
