Sprouting Veggies, How and Why!

This young food is so nutrient dense and way easier to digest.  A little goes a long way and it’s so easy to do right in your own home.  Oh and so inexpensive!

Let’s take broccoli for a minute.  Broccoli contains a wealth of nutrients, including vitamin A, C and calcium. By contrast, broccoli sprouts contain about half as much vitamin A as mature broccoli and a third of the vitamin C, BUT what they do have is an amazing source of vitamin K, with nearly 38 micrograms per half-cup serving, well exceeding mature broccoli. It gets even better, the nutrient that makes broccoli sprouts famous is sulphoraphane, a compound that has anticancer and antidiabetic properties that is present in 3- to 4-day-old broccoli sprouts.  So Enjoy your mature broccoli along with it’s sprouts and you’ve just given your body and extra boost.

This idea goes for most greens you sprout, like a Kale, broccoli, kohlrabi, cabbage and arugula blend. They all sound kinda hard to digest right? Well Sprouts also contain digestive enzymes and some of the highest known levels of certain antioxidants along with high levels of dietary fiber, B complex vitamins, and protein.

For example, one cup of sprouts provides 119 percent of your daily dose of vitamin C. Harmful compounds, such as tannins in seeds are eliminated during the soaking step, which occurs prior to sprouting so they are nothing but healthy.

You can purchase the seeds online or at most health food stores.
