Too expensive to eat healthy? Did you know you can grow your own healthy food year round, even in the winter months? Eating high amounts of sprouted foods, along with other vegetables and fruits promotes health and vitality.
As a low calorie, high nutrient food that supports improved metabolism, sprouts are excellent for overweight people wanting to lose weight. They are an abundant source of nutrients during the winter months when there is less leafy greens and other fresh vegetables around. Sprouts are living foods that contain active enzymes that help digestion. When sprouting, B vitamins are greatly increased. Vitamin C is enhanced compared to dry seeds. Many other important vitamins are increased including Beta-carotene, the precursor to Vitamin A.
The nourishment in fresh sprouts per dollar surpasses most any other food. When a seed is sprouted into the first beginnings of a new plant, much of the stored nutrient potential bursts into the seedling and these little sprouts, including the seed, grain or bean with its greenery become loaded with these nutrients. Protein content increases between 15% and 30%, depending on the plant as the carbohydrate source gets converted. Chlorophyll and fiber content also increase.
