Sprouts Live Well With Living Foods- a book review and recipe 

Why should you sprout? Well, you can control the environment it’s growing in. It’s also incredibly healthy. I know a lot of people who think that they don’t have the time, or that it’s hard. The truth of the matter is- it’s extremely easy and it takes longer to brew a pot of coffee, or to make a tea, juice, or smoothie. So you have time. I know it sounds intimidating if you have never tried to sprout seeds, beans or nuts before. I did a lot of research before the first time I tried. I wish Sprouts was out years ago. And here’s why……

Sprouts by Ian Giesbrecht, also known by Ini has compiled a book that’s packed with everything you want to know about sprouting.

Ian gets into the science of sprouting, what you can sprout and the method, what to be aware of. Sprouting charts, resources and recipes. There’s a glossary so you don’t need to go to google for answers.  All this information is packed into a book with about 124 pages, it may be small, but it’s resourceful.

With permission from Microcosm Publishing I’m able to share a recipe with you 🙂 Enjoy this nice, cold, refreshing green smoothie.

This is an infinitely and delicious option. Whatever sprouts or microgreens you have can combine well with numerous fruits, juices, and seed. Here is a guideline to get you started. Play around, have fun, and enjoy the healthful creative process.

Ian, a fellow  Canadian, has travelled the world learning about different food cultures. He currently lives in Southern Missouri. His partner and Ian are developing and cultivating an edible and medicinal perennial ecosystem.

There was some information missing on page 119- but you can find the info on Microcosm Publishing’s site, along with a few more recipes.

Do you sprout already? Or are you a newbie? I wanna know 🙂
