How to Sprout in 10 Simple Steps - August 2012

By Miscellaneous

Sprouting at home is an easy and cost-effective way to add enzymatically-active, highly alkalizing food to your daily routine.

 

What should you sprout? 

  • Amaranth
  • Buckwheat
  • Beans (all kinds)
  • Chickpeas
  • Lentils
  • Quinoa
  • Sunflower seeds (and more!)

 

How to sprout in 10 easy steps:

 

You can buy sprouting kits in most health food stores, but it's just as easy to sprout at home using three readily-available household objects: a jar, cheesecloth and a rubber band. Here are the ten steps to sprouting:

  1.  Rinse the seeds you intend to sprout well and pour into the jar (fill to 1/4 mark)
  2.  Fill the jar at least 3/4 full of water
  3. Soak overnight at room temperature
  4. Pour out the water and seeds and rinse with fresh water
  5. Return the seeds to the jar
  6. Cover the jar with cheesecloth and secure the cloth with the rubber band
  7. Briefly turn the jar upside down to drain the remaining water
  8. Sprouts will begin to appear within 24 hours (give or take)
  9. Make sure the sprouts stay moist so they sprout fully by rinsing and draining them (as in step #7)
  10. Rinse your sprouts before eating.

 

Sprouts can be stored in the fridge uncovered for up to one week

Happy sprouting!

Wellness Tip
Scheduling Exercise into Your Day
Getting enough exercise isn't always easy. It can be difficult to budget enough time into busy schedules. Some people make time by rising earlier in the morning, but that doesn't work for everyone. Others fit in a walk during a scheduled break in the day, for example, during a portion of the lunch hour. Stopping at a club, park or mall on the way home is another option that works for some people. Keep searching until you find one or more that work for you.

Description: Herbes de Provence (Provençal herbs) is a mixture of dried herbs from Provence invented in the 1970s.The standard mixture typically contains savory, fennel, basil, and thyme flowers and other herbs. The proportions vary by manufacturer. Thyme usually dominates the taste produced by the herb mixture. Lavender is only added in American mixes but is not used in French traditional mixes. Herbes de Provence are used to flavour grilled foods such as fish and meat, as well as vegetable stews. The mixture can be added to foods before or during cooking or mixed with cooking oil prior to cooking so as to infuse the flavour into the cooked food. They are rarely added after cooking is complete.
