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
Addressing Dehydration
Dehydration does not only happen to athletes. Anyone can lose too many fluids. This can happen even while doing everyday tasks such as mowing the lawn or even playing on the beach. Signs of severe dehydration include nausea, inability to speak clearly, confusion and high body temperature. Keep your body fluids at a proper level. Drink enough fluids to make up what you lose before, during and after any activity where you sweat heavily.
