    Salad Sprout Mix

    Sprouting is something that I have wanted to do for quite a while but didn’t really know where to start or what to do! When I started work at Nana’s, the idea came up in conversation and I quickly learnt how easy it is. 

    Apart from being easy, there are so many health benefits to eating the sprouts you grow! Some of the benefits may include a huge boost in enzymes, vitamins (B1, B2 and Niacin) and essential body nutrients, higher quality of protein, essential fatty acids increase (this is a good thing!) and they may assist in weight loss as they are high in fibre and low in calories. All this aside, it is super cool watching them grow and kids LOVE them! My daughter checks on ours all the time and can see them shoot up over a short period of time.

    Nana’s makes life super easy for you by providing an awesome section of legumes and seeds you can sprout. Pretty much any of them will shoot and will taste awesome however if you want something easy to start with, like I did, grab some of the salad sprout mix and give them a crack. They taste super good and are easy to throw in a salad, wrap or eat on their own. The mix we provide has Fenugreek, Lentils, Mung Beans, Adzuki Beans and Alfalfa. Some of these will sprout quicker than others, but once they all look like they have a little shoot, get into them. It should only take a couple of days. YUM!

    How to do it? Two ways….buy a cheap sprouting kit (I think ours was $8) or use a jar! With the kit, put the dry mix in the top, wet them to above the filter notch and let it drain. Do this a couple of times a day and keep them in a cool, darkish location. A kitchen bench will usually work. If using the jar method (Lauren has told me she has done this although I haven’t tried yet), put your dry mix in a large jar with a chux over the top held on with a rubber band. Wet the sprout a couple times a day through the chux and drain the water. Leave the jar in a similar location as mentioned above and…. SPROUT ON! As easy as that! Have fun friends and happy sprouting!
