Today was such a fabulous day with 18 degrees high in Mississauga – I was literally ‘tanning’ in khakis and a t-shirt – no not a bathing suit YET! I loved it – I loved the healing power of the sun on my face and eyes – I felt GREAT.
With the spring in the air, and we start to garden and grow seeds and seedlings – I thought this would be a good time to post my SPROUTING babies that I recently did. I’ve been sprouting for just a few months now but once you start there is NO stopping!!! It’s easy, you can do it year round, and below I will have some nutritional info on the GOODNESS they have.
It’s very easy and inexpensive to get amazing NUTRITION from these tiny things. There are tons of seeds you can sprout, look here for a list. My favourite are Fenugreek and Cress (the Flax is something new I tried, and as you’ll notice by it not being in later photos – this was not the way to sprout them. It was my first time doing them and I’ll still try a different method and let you know how it goes). Fenugreek is attributed with being a blood cleanser diaphoretic and a lymphatic cleanser. (for my MG friends this is what will truly HELP you.) Cress have an abundant source of vitamins and minerals and contain iodine, phosphorous, sulphur and iron. Regular consumption of these sprouts has been attributed with brightening the eyes as well. It is also a remedy to cleanse the blood. Cress has a peppery flavour which contributes to it being delicious in sandwiches and salads.
Sprouts are rich in Vitamins A, B, C, calcium, protein, they are easy on the digestive system. My family has learned to love them on everything – almost – and recently they have become conversation pieces as I tell my friends about how great they are. I’ve talked them into it – so I think you will try too…
