How to incorporate sprouts in our daily diet

To lead a healthy life, I especially recommend you incorporate the consumption of sprouts in your daily healthy diet, but if you have not tasted it is good to you familiarize first with the different types of sprouts, flavors and textures. You can find them in health food stores and some supermarkets. They can be purchased fresh, put up in pouches or trays, and also preserved. This has some drawbacks because the product will never be as cool and therefore have lost some of their properties when we go to consume and, moreover, if it is not ecological we will have environmentally toxic chemicals used in cultivation.

Once we prove some varieties it is best to make ourselves at home with any of the methods to make homemade sprouts that I explained in the previous article. In this way we ensure that their origin and have not been tampered with any chemicals, and is a process that helps us to get acquainted with nature and it will always be cheaper than buying done.

It is ideal to start with the production and consumption of alfalfa sprouts, because it is easy to get organic seeds, the germination process does not have many complications and then we reward their excellent properties, its mild flavor and crunchy texture. We can combine it with any other sprouts and add to salads, sandwiches, soups, sauteed vegetables, pasta ... even as a filling for an omelet. When we test them and check how good it is and how good it feels we can not fail to include in our daily diet and we can then start trying other types of sprouts like fenugreek, mung bean, wheat, beets, mustard...
