Sprout them beans… #foodie friday

Mung bean sprouts (homegrown)

Mung bean sprouts (homegrown)

This is my second post featuring sprouts. Here is the first with lots more photos. I’m really having fun learning how to grow them.

I’m still learning how to eat since I went low histamine and part of that is learning to use some new foods in order to continue getting enough variety and nutrients in my diet. Exploring sprouting is one way I’m doing that. It’s fun and it’s actually something I’ve wanted to do for a long time but never got around to. Bean, seed and grain sprouts are one way to maximize nutrient density in these foods.

The above photo are mung beans which are only about 3 days old. To get them looking like the ones in the store you have to grow them for a few more days. Mine were bursting out of their container so I called it quits early and made a delicious stir fry with them. Next time I will use a larger container.

I’ve been learning a lot about sprouting here: Sprout People

This is a good brief article on sprouting in general too:  Why sprout?

Eating wholesome whole real food is important for body/mind/spirit health and well-being. I’ve written a lot about my adventure with diet and healing here:  Nutrition and gut health, Mental health and diet
