The benefits of growing sprouts (and a GIVEAWAY!)

With Spring right around the corner, I am so ready for green. Green grass, flowers and veggies.

Sigh, yes, nice green, FRESH veggies.  Some of those those first greens are my favorite…kale, spinach and green onions.

The benefits of growing sprouts (and a giveaway!)

 

To get us through until it is warm enough to garden, we are growing sprouts in the house. It is a great touch of green to help our diets and get over the winter blahs!

Sprouts are are a great way to get your greens in. They are easy to grow and are full of nutrients. We use them on salads, sandwiches, in smoothies and even soups and stews.

What are some of the benefits of growing sprouts?

  • You are growing them so you can control the quality to be non-GMO, chemical and pesticide free
  • Sprouting increased the nutritional value of the beans and seeds
  • Sprouts are easier on the digestion system because soaking helps improve the protein and fiber of the seeds

    I have been sprouting different grains for my Ducks all winter. I would love to win and sprout these for myself!! 😉

    I’m currently enjoying a blend of alfalfa, clover, radish, and onion sprouts. Super tasty on sandwiches – though my kids eat them by the handful. 😉

    I’ve never sprouted before. I love eating sprouts. I’m a beginner gardener. It never dawned on me to grow sprouts. It’s an exciting idea.

    I’ve tried it in jars but I’m afraid of growing mold along with sprouts and my sensitive digestion so I’ve stopped until I can get the proper gear.

    I’ve only sprouted fodder for my chickens, LOL! (I also sprout dried beans before cooking, but those aren’t ‘greens’) I’ve eaten sprouted peas, and they are wonderful!

    I’ve only ever sprouted Alfalfa, and now I have to stop them because they bother my Lupus. I’d like to sprout some other seeds.
