Sprouts Have The Highest Concentration Of Nutrition Per Calorie
Of Any Food
Sprouts are rich sources of vitamins, minerals, trace
minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, chlorophyll and protein. They
are low calorie and contain little or no fat. The fat they do
contain is the healthy fat that your body needs. As some of the
most nutritious foods that exist, they make a great addition to
healthy eating plan. Use in salads, on sandwiches, added to
soups or stir fried with vegetables. Enjoy these nutrient-packed
delicacies as a snack all by themselves or added as a garnish to
a main dish. Eat them raw or cooked. Of course, as with all
food, the nutritional value is greater when they are eaten raw.
But eating them cooked is better than not eating them at all.
Sprouting magnifies the nutritional value of the seed. It
boosts the B-vitamin content, triples the amount of vitamin A
and increases vitamin C by a factor of 5 to 6 times. Starches
are converted to simple sugars, making sprouts very easily
digestible. You can have them fresh all year round, even when
fresh vegetables are hard to find. It's easier than planting a
garden outside and they're ready much quicker. You can even grow
them when the ground outside is frozen solid. And the best part
is that you can grow the freshest, tastiest sprouts right in the
comfort of your own kitchen. It takes less than 2 minutes a day
and they are ready in 3 to 7 days, depending on the variety.
You can sprout seeds, beans, grains and nuts. Some of the
most popular varieties are alfalfa, broccoli, red clover,
radish, mung beans, lentils, garbanzo beans and peas.
There are 1000s more Articles written by many Doctors and
Scientists on the web. All with different values and conclusions
but all stating that Sprouts is where it ALL begins.
