Have you ever grown your own sprouts? If not, you can find out how in the great little book. Why sprout in the first place? Sprouts are burstung with nutients and vitamins. In fact, a person could probably live on sprouts alone and still get all the nutrition needed. Research has shown that seeds increase their nutrient content many time overwhen they sprout. Then when the leaves poke out and become green with chlorphyll, they also become very cleansing as well.

So, you want eat sprouts for their value to your health. You can use them to supplement your diet, or use them as your main source of nutrition. Either way, when you sprout your seeds at home, you bypass the packaging and shipping of processed foods, saving money.

Sprouting at home is easy. The book describes several methods, but the easiest is the jar method. All you need is a jar, a rubber band, and a piece of cheesecloth or a nylon stocking. Soak the seeds, rinse them as they grow, and in about a week you have sprouts.Alfalfa sprouts are the easiest to grow, but try mung beans, lentils, raddish, garbonzo beans, soy beans, and others. This will vary your diet and give you many different nutrients. Oh, yes, and don't worry about not getting enough protein if you decide to skip the meat. Sprouts have lots of protein.

The Pers end the book with lots of recipes to tickle your tastebuds. vegi-burgers, stuffed tomatoes, cauliflower gratin, pea soup, and many others.

This is a short, easy to read book with good instructions and lots of info. If you want to eat a healthier diet, this is one good source of information.
