I'm Sprouting - How To Sprout And The Benefit of Sprouting

by - January 20, 2014

Sprouting is one of the quickest and easiest ways to pack a group of nutrients into your body in just one handful.

Sprouts are incredibly nutritious; Studies show remarkable levels of B Vitamins, as well as Vitamins C, E and A (up to 15 times the original content!). Some folks refer to sprouts as "pre-digested" food due to this breaking down the process in the sprouting stage of life. This makes the sprouts far easier to digest than the original seed.
Sprouts can be eaten at any meal to help the digestive process along and keep raw living nutrition pumping through your blood.
So with all that said I decide to give it a try.

Here's the how to:

day 1: I soak the lentils over night

Day 2: In the morning I rinse them off and laid them in a plate cover with a damped paper towel

Day 3: I rinse again and repeat

Day 4: the lentils had sprouted all the way and were ready to eat

I mixed in sprouted lentils, shredded lettuce, "meaty taco fillings", corns, crushed taco shells

So yummy, I added cheese to mine but you can choose to skip the cheese

ENJOY! Let me know if you tried it.

  1. I have purchased sprouts in my health food store, but I always prefer sprouting at home because I have more control over the quality and cleanliness of my sprouts that way. Your step by step post will be so helpful to people who have not yet tried sprouting at home. You made it seem so simple. I'm enjoying reading many of your other healthy blog posts as well. I'm just pinning, tweeting and sharing!
    Thank you so much for partying with us at the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop! I sincerely appreciate it!
    All the best, Deb

  3. Not sure if my last post went through. I do not see it so forgive me if you get 2 comments from me. This timing of your post is awesome. I am about to start sprouting too.
