Step by Step Sprouting Guide
Sprouting. How come it took us so long to form this lovely habit? With the right equipment it’s easy as a pie. And also, very healthy. If you compare it to boiling, steaming or eating raw seeds or legumes, turning regular grains into sprouts can have some pretty exciting benefits. For example, the sprouting process makes it easier for the body to absorb minerals and proteins. And the icing on the cake? Most sprouts are packed with vitamin B and C.
Here’s a flawless and idiot-proof step by step sprouting guide. Put the guide on the fridge, memorize it, or tattoo it on a body part of your choice (please don’t go for a lower back tattoo, you might find it hard to read the guide without the use of a mirror).
If you have one of these, it’s finally time to use it. You need to cover the jar with something that holds the seeds when you rinse. As you can see, there are caps for this that fit on a standard mason jar. But if you don’t have one, use a piece of cheesecloth. Or even better, nylon stocking. All roads lead to Rome.
Place beans, lentils or seeds of your choice in a jar and cover completely with water. Wait for 6-8 hours.
Thoroughly rinse the legumes under running water until the water is running clear. Place the jar upside down and let the water filter out.
Repeat twice a day for two days. Continue to place the jar upside down.
Yup, that’s right.
24 hours later!
This is what they will look like after two days. Store in the fridge for 4-5 days (or use your nose).
