We have a new "toy"...my Kitchen Garden is now on my counter top and in full production. This little kit makes growing food accessible to everyone no matter where you live. It's food growing on the smallest scale and it works!
Benefits of sprouting:
"A sprout possesses all of the energy, vitamins and nutrients and power that enables it to be transformed from a small seed into a strong plant. At this stage its nutritional value is at its highest for instance, sprouted seeds can contain 400% more protein than lettuce and over 3900% more beta-carotine." from www.energizeforlife.com
There are other ways to grow sprouts besides this kitchen garden, but I really like this set up and the colors look so cheerful on my counter.
We have alfafa, wild peas, fenugreek, mung beans,canola and black urad producing at the moment. I have lentils and wheat waiting to go next.
We are having them on crackers with humus, on salads and in our sandwiches. Power food, quick and simple.
