Change it up, sprout it up
Are you looking for a fresh way to liven your salad or a crisp nutrient dense addition to your dishes? Perhaps you need a simple way to get more out of your go to seeds, nuts or grains. Maybe you just want to try something new.
Yes, seeds that have been grown into tiny baby plants. They’re a perfect addition to a Nutratarian lifestyle. They can be eaten raw or cooked. Alfalfa, radish, sunflower, broccoli, lentils, beans and a vast number of other seeds, beans and grains can be sprouted in your home and enjoyed for numerous different health promoting nutrients.
Nuts, seeds and grains are wonderful foods full of nutrients. By sprouting them they become easier to digest and their nutrients are easier to access. The enzymes that occur during the break down of the seed will actually aid in digestion and make it easier for the the body to absorb the nutrients inside these tiny packages of goodness.
Nutrient levels in the seeds, nuts and grains are increased by sprouting. Fiber content, vitamin and essential fatty acid levels are pumped up by pluming up these little gems with water and letting them grow a bit.
An added bonus is that you won’t be spending as much time picking tiny nutrient powerhouses out of your teeth but will reap even more benefits from them.
Sprouts are also alkalizing which is beneficial in creating a healthy environment in the body. Acidity is known to contribute to some cancers. By eating alkaline foods we are creating an environment that doesn’t welcome cancer and instead keeps cells healthy.
Spring has sprung, no better time to try out sprouts than with the seasonal cycle of the natural way of growth.
Change it up, sprout it up.
