We have only one life. We should live it to its fullest. But we live in a world that is full of stress, full of toxins and full of things that presses us into the ground.
Your path to health will lead you to explore your mind, your heart and your body. We want to help you nurture your life to be as good as it can be. To be as good as it should be. But we cannot do everything. Therefore, we will be sharing with you one aspect of this – growing your own sprouts. Sounds trivial. If you do not understand the power found in sprouts, we hope to be able to begin that journey of understanding.
We are talking about alfafa sprouts, bean sprouts, radish sprouts, bean sprouts, lentil sprouts, wheat sprouts, pumpkin sprouts and more! Sprouts have one of the highest store of vitamins and enzymes. Adding sprouts to your salad can do wonders for your body.
What goodness, exactly, do sprouts bring? The key advantages occur in the sprouting process. While some might argue that taking the seeds (beans, legumes etc) gives the same goodness, there are several important things that take place during the sprouting process:
- Enzymes are activated when the seed begins to sprout
- Proteins convert to free amino acids as the seed germinates
- Starches convert to simple sugars to nourish the sprouting plant
- Minerals combine to increase assimilation
- Vitamin content increases, for example, sprouts contain up to 30 times the vitamin C found in the seed
- Chlorophyll and carotene content increase dramatically when exposed to sunlight (we will share more about this when we talk about growing your own sprouts)
- Home-grown sprouts are inexpensive and easy to nurture
Let us explore together, this simple path to health.
