I've been growing sprouts now for a couple of years. It's incredibly easy, and they're an easy way to add some nutrients to Rob's food. He loves sandwiches, especially with sprouts. The man eats the same sandwich every work morning --mesquite-smoked turkey, Swiss cheese, honey mustard and mayo, and sprouts. Rob is not a morning person, so he gets up as late as possible, and I make him this sandwich for "lunch". But he actually eats it on his way in to campus sometime between 9 and 10 a.m., depending on the semester's schedule. I learned how, and bought my supplies, from Sprout People. They have videos --so easy to follow!
Lately I've also been growing bean sprouts to add to salads --crunchy and tasty, and again, lots of nutrition. And so pretty! Here they are soaking:
And here they are, beginning to sprout.
One side benefit: I use the soaking water to feed my Christmas cactus. It never fails to bloom after getting one of these nutrition-packed drinks. In fact, it's been blooming now for most of this year.
Now, I want to know why I've gotten sick three times in the last two months, even though I started exercising and eating better!
