Have you ever had sprouts?  Our family loves them!  They are tiny little microgreens filled with enzymes (over 100 times more than other uncooked fruits and vegetables), protein, fiber, fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins.  We have always wanted to sprout our own seeds but I always thought it was going to be a messy process.  Little did I know it was so simple (and clean!).

We received a starter sprouting kit from Moonlight Micro-Farms.  The process took about a week and was so simple.  The instructions that came with the seeds were very easy to follow.  Bean and Tink loved watching the sprouts grow every day.  It was so simple I allowed them to take care of the sprouts!  Tink would rinse them every day and Bean would turn it upside down.  It was such a neat project for the kids.  Not only did they enjoy growing their own sprouts, they loved eating them!

Out entire weeks worth of sprouts lasted a whopping 5 minutes with the kids.  I love how excited they are about starting the process all over again.

Here are a few ways you can eat sprouts:

  • On Sandwiches
  • On Salads
  • On Tacos
  • On Pizzas
  • Completely by itself (Bean and Tink love this one... the sprouts are actually fun to eat!)
