It all started with this blog, in 2008. It used to be called "Becoming Raw" and it was a personal blog sharing bits of research and nutritional inspiration. Later, it evolved into the Nutritious You brand of healthy snacks and takeout meals, you can find more info here www.NutritiousYou.com
Growing sprouts is one of my favorite subjects. One of the reasons is because many people think it's very hard. It is NOT! To prove it, I posted a little article on how to grow them in my December 2009 entry. Now, finally I created this video to show the steps. I am using the green pea sprouting seeds as an example but the technique applies to most of them. As soon as they become live (germinated) or open up (which happens after about 8 hrs of being in the water) they are ready for you. You can eat them then or you can keep them on a counter in a wet environment and wait until they grow little tails. Keeping them the fridge will slow the growing process. Rinse them up once a day and cover with the wet paper towel as shown on the video or with a cover with some ventilation. The picture on the right is of the 3 day old green pea sprouts and this is when I prefer putting them in my meals and in the recipe below.
