Sprouting seeds and beans can greatly increase the bioavailability of nutrients - making it much easier for your body to absorb nutrients in a new and exciting way!
Sprouting is a simple as 1, 2, 3!
1. Put seeds/beans in a container with a straining lid (i.e. cheesecloth) and soak in water overnight on the counter.
2. Rinse the seeds/beans twice a day for about three days and then store in the fridge.
Sprouts are a great addition to salads, sandwiches, wraps, stir-frys, noodle dishes, or eaten alone as a snack!
Some things that are commonly used for sprouting include:
- alfalfa seeds
- broccoli seeds
- garbanzo beans
- mung beans
- sunflower seeds
- radish seeds
*It is best to make sure the seeds you're planning to sprout at organic and non-GMO.
Many sprouting seeds and beans can be purchased in most grocery stores, co-ops, health food stores, and online.
