Simple to do and healthy for you!

During the summer months I usually have a jar of sprouts growing in the kitchen. It's simple. I found the 'Sprout Jar' at my local health food co-op but any jar will do. I bought a bag of
Zesty Sprouting Mix by 'NOW FOODS'. You only use 2-3 tablespoons seeds at a time so the bag will last and last. My salad is spring mix, cherry tomatoes, red onion, banana peppers (you put those in everything, right?), left over tuna and some feta cheese. I used some olive oil and a bit of juice from the banana pepper jar for dressing.

I love sprouts.. but I hate the smell when they've gone rotten because I'm the only one who thinks to use them. I should sprout my own in smaller batches. I think I have alfalfa seeds kicking around somewhere. Radish is great too.

What a fun thing to do, grow your own sprouts. I've heard about this but never actually seen it done before. I'll have to give it a try.

Good idea, but I never think to do it. I need to....even if they are just for me.
