Simple and good for ya! Use this recipe to make hummus, also great in salads and any recipe you would use beans for. Cooking time is sprouting time. Some benefits of sprouting: Nutrients increase their concentration: proteins by about 20%, nucleic acids by 30%, and many vitamins by as much as 500%(!) High enzyme activity stimulates the body’s own enzymes into greater activity, giving you more energy Sprouted seeds are easier to digest since complex carbohydrates break down into simple sugars, and proteins break down into amino acids; both are easier for the body to process and promote our ability to absorb minerals in the food Seeds use energy to grow a sprout; therefore, sprouted seeds have fewer calories than in their whole form Sprouts have a number of anti-cancer properties. The other benefit is that it’s one more way you can incorporate raw foods into your diet. Eating raw gives me more energy, is cleansing (the improved digestion is no joke!). I adapted this from Sprint2the table.
