There are a lot of spring queens out there but this lady has just gotten started. Thanks to a friend, I was given basic directions and some seeds to begin growing my own sprouts! This really is as easy you've heard it was! Rinse them a few times a day and very soon you will be enjoying the health benefits and fresh taste of sprouts. There are so many types of seeds and beans that you can sprout. Do your research and add some alkaline healing to your diet! Here is an incredible resource called "Seeds of Sustainability". What can't you do with a mason jar and nature's magic!?
organic alfalfa seeds (2 tsp)
organic mung beans (2 tbsp)
cheese cloth/netting/steel mesh/cutting of pantyhose/anything that will allow drainage!
*or you can use a tray
soak overnight or for 8 - 12 hours
drain and spread out in a tray or in the mason jar (on its side)
rinse with water 3x daily
Ready to eat in 4 - 6 days. Provide exposure to sunlight only a for a few hours during growth process. Keep in minimal exposure to sunlight most of the time. You will know when they are ready by how they look! Best eaten fresh or alternatively, keep in refrigerator after the seeds have sprouted.
