My Favorites at the Health Expo
Seeing things in action...You can't beat that. This sprouting display got my attention last year and I went looking for them again this year. For them it's all about eating Raw and nothing cooked. Well, I don't do that by a long shot but I do like to include sprouts in lots of things because of their high vitamin and enzyme count. It gives the body a rest and we don't have to produce our own enzymes for digestion because sprouts have the enzyme activity going on and they digest themselves. Well, that's a simplified layman's way of saying it. I'd like to sprout things on my own but whenever I've tried, and believe me, I've tried, my sprouts mold and get sad looking. I think we don't have enough warmth in our house and since we are in the woods we just don't get rid of the dampness. But with these sprouters I do believe anyone could make sprouts and they look so healthy and yummy and they have so much crunch. If I had these I would probably make a ton of sprouts and then sell them at the Farmers market. Sprouted lentils make a wonderful crunchy summertime snack. mmm...I'm getting hungry. LOL. You're looking at four day growth of garbanzo beans.
