Leafy Green Protein








Alfalfa sprouts are an amazing way to pack your diet with nutrients.  When I was little, I hated them.  I hated the flavor, the texture and even the smell.  My mom used to tell me how good they were for me and how she wished I would eat them.  Now that I am grown, I understand what all the fuss was about.

Alfalfa seeds are a great source of fiber and trace minerals, but when you sprout them for 5 days, and let them green up, they become a nutrient rich power supply.  Vitamins like A, B12, C, E, and K and Folic Acid increase exponentially when you sprout a seed instead of just eating it.  But the best thing about Alfalfa sprouts is the protein!  Did you know that a 1 cup serving of Alfalfa sprouts is 35% protein?  It's true!  These leafy greens contain more protein per serving then beef, pork, poultry, and even soybean sprouts.  Now that is something to shout about.

So, how do we grow them and use them?  Well, that's where Mary Ann comes in.  This month she is offering several classes on growing and using both leafy green sprouts and white sprouts (like beans, soybeans and wheat).   She will teach you how to grow all kinds of sprouts, how to care for the seeds and the sprouts so they last longer, and even how to get your family to eat them.
