Sprouting Beginnings!

I've been saying that the next thing I wanted to dabble in is sprouting. I found this cute little sprouter for around 20 bucks on Amazon, so I decided to give it a shot... Above you'll see the seeds before soaking. The tiny ones are broccoli and the fat ones are lentil.

And... drumroll please... 48 hours later from those little dormant seeds, we have life! (After 24 hours I threw away the other full tray of broccoli seeds because they were all fuzzy, but now I see that the fuzz is just tiny roots! Oops.)

First thing Will did when I showed them to him was grab a fat lentil seed sprout and eat it! Good boy.

Yay!!! It's so exciting to grow and eat sprouts. My going raw journal was titled: Sprouting Alive. :-)

Congrats on the birth of your sprout babies! How cool that Will is interested in them, too!!!

Lots of love to you,

badash said...

REALLY?! well dang, we should meet up sometime and talk about raw foods!

how long have you been raw?

badash said...

i've only been raw for 2 months.

i will be doing this the rest of my life!!!!!
