Health Benefits of Sprouting

sproutsSprouting is a process used by many vegans, in which you extract a sprout from a bean or seed (for example, buckwheat). The spouting process packs a powerful nutritional punch; in fact, sprouts contain over 100 more vitamins, minerals and amino acids than raw fruits and vegetables. Sprouts are also an excellent source of enzymes, high in protein, easy to digest and can even help you lose weight.[1]

There are plenty of tutorials online that can guide you through the process of making your own sprouts. It is very inexpensive to get started; you’ll need a glass jar, a meshed screen and some seeds. In just a few days you will start to see sprouts which you can then add to your salads and sandwiches for a healthy perk.
