Back to the Seed: Boosting Nutrition Through Sprouting
The world we live in has become a dirty world (true story) – and that’s not just in terms of the air that we breathe or the trash that’s accumulating in our landfills. Even the food products that we eat have become tainted with preservatives and additives that could have adverse effects on our health. These additives might make our food tastier but they do settle inside our bodies and fester until they cause illness and disease. We all have a choice: to live long and healthy eating the right foods or to enjoy present pleasures and suffer from debilitating disease at the end of a short life.
The choices do sound like an exaggeration. But, the truth is, it’s not at all difficult to eat healthy. It also does not have to be expensive. I came across some material recently about an organic way of eating called sprouting. Advocates of this healthy eating practice make use of a sprout maker to grow sprouts that they eat in order to get their daily nutritional supply. According to studies, these sprouts contain the most amount of vitamins and minerals – as much as ten times more, in fact, than their full-grown counterparts. The nutrients in these sprouts are easily digested and absorbed into the body.
Unlike produce, sprouts are easy to grow right in your own home. It also does not depend on the weather or the season. Tending to your sprout maker does not take up too much time, with just several minutes every day. This gives you exactly the nutrition that you need, when you need it. It sounds simple enough for me. I have yet to come to terms with the idea of eating only sprouts. But, they said that there are delicious recipes with these sprouts as the main ingredients. I could probably give it a try to see what kind of changes it can do for my body.
