Sprouting your own seeds is actually really easy to do, and it converts a seed’s starch into slow-release carbs and also releases digestive enzymes, making it easier for the body to absorb their nutrients.
You have to start with live seeds (you can’t sprout seeds that are already dried or roasted) and follow these steps:
- In a canning jar, spread seeds in a single layer and spray them with water.
- Cover with a glass plate and place in a warm, sunny area.
- Continue to spray with water twice a day and allow to sprout for four to seven days.
- Enjoy your sprouts on a salad or sandwich, blended into a smoothie, or in baked goods!
