Kids will eat sprouts especially if you teach your children about sprouts and have them pick out their seeds and g row their own.

I didn’t realize how easy it is to grow your own sprouts, but it is. This is a technique I learned from my friend Nancy Addison, (check out her site at www.OrganicHealthy Lifestyle.com )

Sprouts are incredibly health. See article French Onion Dip vs. Hummus article. Sprouts are typically enjoyed raw or cooked. They fall into three categories: salad, grain and bean-type sprouts. Add them to scrambled eggs, sandwiches, salads, coleslaw, dips and spread, wraps, casseroles, soups , breads and stir-fry.

HOW TO SPROUT SEEDS

This is the easiest way! I am always looking for a shortcut.

What you will need:

Seeds try johnnyseeds.com or sproutpeople.org.

Jar, cheesecloth, rubber band

1. Rinse your seeds a couple of times, then soak them overnight in a jar of clean filtered water.

2.Dump the soaked seeds in a glass jar. Cover the jar with a cheesecloth and secure it with a rubber band around the lip of the jar.Turn the jar over a container with a wider mouth to catch dripping water.

3. Rinse and drain the seed and then the sprouts at least two times a day.

4. In 3 days you will have sprouts, let them grow an inch or two  Store in refrigerator, and they will stay fresh for days.
