Eat Sprouts!

One of the easiest ways to fully nourish the body is to eat sprouted seeds. Sprouts have been used for food for thousands of years and are very easy to digest and are delectable in a wide variety of exciting tastes. Sprouts are available in most quality markets and can be trusted to be pure and unrefined. Of all raw vegetables, none can equal sprouts for sheer nutritional clout as you can see in the chart below. What other plant source gives you up to 35% protein? Not only that, but you can grow your own sprouts in your own house with nothing more than an inexpensive sprouting jar, or one you make yourself. Treat yourself and your family to some of the best nutrition available on the planet. Eat some every day. It's the perfect snack.
Enjoy. Learn. Share.

This list is by no means complete. There is very little information on sprout nutrition (which we have found) so take this more as an outline than a hard and fast list. For example - I'm sure there are Carbohydrates in Lentils and all other beans, but I've not seen it written. We will update this info as information becomes known to us,
but go with this - sprouts are a powerhouse of nutrition,
they have been grown for over 5000 years by many civilizations for many reasons -
Eat More Sprouts and find out for yourself how good they are!

Adhereing to my food restrictions as a result of my NRT, one being no wheat. I have paused from eatting Ezekiel Bread due to the wheat sprouts. So my question is would this bread (glutten free no flour) be something that I should avoid because this flourless bread have wheat sprouts? Please reference the link http://www.foodforlife.com/our-products.html

Also, I feel like a brand new person, as a result of my health evaluation and the protocols that you recommended.

I am forever grateful.
