It is absolutely simple to grow sprouts at home these days. In fact, all you need to do it is some water, organic seeds and a sprouting tray. Using this guide you can make simple and nutritious home grown raw food any time you want to. If you have time to brush your teeth each day, you have time to make sprouting a part of your life. These little green wonders are loaded with minerals, vitamins, protein and antioxidants

To begin, you first need a source of seeds. It is strongly recommended that you purchase organic sprouting seeds whenever possible. When farmers are growing their crops, they spray pesticides and other chemicals on the crops to keep the weeds and insects at bay. Well, the sad thing is these chemicals are becoming part of the food chain. When you get organic seeds, they are certified to be free from such chemicals. The small added expense is worth it in the long run. When you consider growing sprouts for the added nutrition, it just makes sense to get the best ones possible.
The time you take to grow sprouts will be well rewarded.
Taking your organic seeds, soak them anywhere from 6 hours to overnight in clean filtered water. The soaking process will wake up the seeds and allow the tough outer wall of the seed to open. For larger seeds or those with hard shells, this is not optional. Next, after the soaking, take your seeds and transfer them to your sprouters tray. This is an excellent device that will allow you to make sprouts uniformly and in a healthy manner. The trays have small drainage holes in the bottom to allow the excess water to drip out. In addition, the holes allow air to circulate through the trays which help in the process. Two or 3 times per day, you much water the tray. Depending on the variety and size of seed, your sprouts are ready to harvest in 3 to 8 days. A good suggestion is to taste them each time you water them from day 2 onward. When they taste the best and have grown to your liking, harvest them. This means, washing them in plenty of clean water to remove the seed hulls. Next you can dry them in a salad spinner. For smaller sprouts, you can line the spinner with paper towel. Be sure to get them as dry as possible and store them in the refrigerator for up to a week. If you follow these simple instructions, you could be growing sprouts from organic seeds in your home for mere pennies. Considering the time invested in the process, this is the simplest raw food you can grow.
