Sprouts , sprouts, sprouts...

So after taking a moment to pause at the sheer awesomeness of where we will be this week, I got my head back in the Sprouts and made sure my little babies were coming along nicely....Sprouts are the most powerful little plant.

Sprouts are one of the most complete and nutritional of all foods that exist. Sprouts are rich with vitamins, minerals, proteins, and enzymes. Their nutritional value was discovered by the Chinese thousands of years ago. Over the past several years, in the U.S., numerous scientific studies have shown the importance of sprouts in a healthy diet. 

Have you ever heard of a vegetable which continues to gain vitamins after you harvest it? Sprouts do this!!! Sprouts are LIVING foods. Even after you harvest your sprouts and refrigerate them, they will continue to grow slowly and their vitamin content will actually increase. Compare this with store-bought vegetables and fruits, which start losing their vitamin content as soon as they’re picked and often have to be shipped a thousand miles or more in the winter...and you will start sprouting too! Wow!
