Our love of sprouted plant foods goes way beyond taste and texture.
Here are just a few: 1. Enzymes: Experts estimate that there can be up to 100 times more enzymes in sprouts than unsprouted foods.
There are numerous documented health benefits that will knock your socks off.
2. Protein: The quality of the protein in the beans, nuts, seeds, or grains improves when it is sprouted. Proteins change during the soaking and sprouting process, improving its nutritional value. 3. Fiber: The fiber content of the beans, nuts, seeds, or grains increases substantially. 4. Vitamins: Vitamin content increases by up to 20 times the original value.
Want some ideas for how to include sprouted foods in your diet? It’s easier (and more delicious) than you could imagine. They can be found at most supermarkets and all health foods stores. Sprouts come in all shapes and sizes. Add some Leafy Sprouts or Bean Sprouts – or even Grain Sprouts to a salad of garden vegetables – OR better yet – use nothing but sprouts and toss with a little oil and vinegar or your favorite dressing.
