Grow Your Own Sprouts

I love sprouts. I pick them up at the market regularly. What I didn’t know was how easy they are to grow!!! …And now is the perfect time to grow your own food!

I got a kit about two years ago as a gift. It sat in the back of a cabinet until I recently decided to give it a try. I cannot tell you how excited I was that it actually worked! The directions in the kit I received were very straight forward. It described the growing and harvesting stages and watering directions. It is so nice to have fresh, real sprouts right in my kitchen. Plus, the price point is much more reasonable growing your own!

I eat sprouts because I like them. I really do think they’re tasty. My favorite are broccoli sprouts, but I like the spicy radish ones as well. But really, I’ll eat them all! Nutritionally, broccoli sprouts contain something called sulfuorphane.


Sulfurophane induces the cytochrome P-450 system, aka phase II of liver detoxification. Three day old sprouts of the cruciferious family contain 10-100 times higher levels of glucoraphanin (the glucosinolate of sulforaphane) than do the corresponding mature plants. Small quantities of crucifer sprouts may protect against the risk of cancer as effectively as much larger quantities of mature vegetables of the same variety. Woah. That’s intense, right? [PMID:9294217]

Also, just a small handful (about two ounces) of sprouts has about the same sulforaphane content as over two pounds of raw broccoli. Now that’s what I call nutrient dense food!


Eating greens aren't your thing? I use these algae tablets when I'm on the run or running out of veggies! [Code: GETSATIATED saves 20% at checkout]
