I’ve been excited about growing sprouts for awhile. They’re easy to grow, cheap to buy, and VERY healthy to consume. Yesterday I ordered a couple pounds of sprouting seeds from Heirloom Acres seeds. It cost me only 20.50 for Certified Organic chia seeds, mustard seeds, quinoa seeds, alfalfa seeds, amaranth seeds, and green lentils seeds.
The quality of the protein in the beans, nuts, seeds, or grains improves when it is sprouted. Proteins change during the soaking and sprouting process, improving its nutritional value. The amino acid lysine, for example, which is needed to prevent cold sores and to maintain a healthy immune system increases significantly during the sprouting process.
