Sprouts, Natures Finest Medicine

Learn how you can grow them at home!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could replace the cost of your vitamin and mineral supplements?  If you are looking for a natural way to obtain those essential vitamins and minerals as well as fight disease and infection, you need to take a look at growing sprouts. Sprouts are an amazing source of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, enzymes, antioxidants, carotenoids, chlorophyll, and more!  In fact, the sprout of a grown plant is where the most nutrition lies.

Sprouts can be enjoyed on a year round basis, however, the winter is a perfect time to grow  and enjoy eating them because in most places it’s too cold to grow a garden, the farmer’s markets are gone, the sun does not stay up as long and we become dependent on what is sold in the store or what we have preserved ourselves.  The benefits of eating sprouts far outweigh any other food source.  There is more nutrition in a tray of sprouts than in all the self-preserved cans in your food storage.  Now, I’m not recommending living completely off sprouts, but remember…they are an excellent source of all vitamins, nutrients, enzymes, carotenoids, antioxidants, chlorphyll, minerals, and more!  Another great thing about sprouts; we can grow them on the kitchen counter!  Eating a handful of home grown sprouts is definitely a huge step in self-reliant health and well being.

Sprouting will be divided up into two categories; vegetable seed sprouts and wheatgrass, which includes all grasses that can be sprouted and grown for juicing.  While I have sprouted and juiced for years, I am not the master here.  It is just something I do.  So, I have found for you someone who is a master at sprouting!  I know you will enjoy and appreciate what he has to offer.  I will also show you what I do, so you have more than one reference point.

The book I would recommend for this lesson is:  The Sprouting Book by Ann Wigmore
