Sprouting For Energy

Eating a healthy diet but not full of the energy you feel you should have?

Did you know it’s possible to consume foods that are rich in nutrients that the body cannot utilise due to anti-nutrients?

Sprouted seeds and grains get rid of some of these anti-nutrients allowing your body to utilise more nutrients from the food you are consuming.

So, before you reach for any nutritional supplements or wonder why your balanced healthy diet isn’t all it should be cracked up to be –  why not try including sprouted seeds and grains to your diet? 

Not only do sprouted grains get rid of some of these anti-nutrients but they are also a little powerhouse of nutrients themselves. As soon as the sprouting process starts the vitamins, minerals and protein content substantially increase with a simultaneous decrease in caloric and carbohydrate content. How wonderful is that? – nutrients increase – calories decrease – its a perfect superfood.

Not only are they a true nutritional powerhouse, but they are alkaline, whole,  pure and …wait for it…cheap! So why isn’t everyone on this bandwagon? I’m guessing there isn’t a great deal of margin in it for big corporations. But its cheap and very easy for you to incorporate these little powerhouses into your life on a daily basis.

Sprouting your own seeds is extremely easy to do. I went to Amazon, bought myself some seeds and a stackable tray of 4 seed sprouters (you don’t actually need the trays but they are convenient) the package cost me less than $25 and I’ve got seeds sprouting all over my kitchen.  May have to make myself a seed halo! I love eating the sprouting seeds on their own, they are great for topping off salads and wraps, adding to stir fries and soups and include in your morning smoothie.
