Personal Sprouting Jar w Asian Blend Sprout Mix

Personal Sprouting Jar w Asian Blend Sprout Mix | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
One of the basic cornerstones of Ann Wigmores (one of the original holistic health practitioners and known as the mother of wheatgrass shots) wellness solutions was the use of sprouts to provide the body live food that was full of important nutrients and enzymes. By delivering these potent ingredients of wellness to you on a consistent basis many have found an enhanced bodily system that is more capable of healing and fighting illness. Sprouting is a proactive way to add live and vital food easily to your diet. Our new line of Personal Sprouting Units allows you to grow and produce sprouts right in your home. The new asian blend sprout mix contains Organic and Non GMO Mung Beans, Adzuki Beans and Snow Peas. Our kit pictured shows the progression over three days using our seeds and kits. You soak initially overnight. Rinse and drain at least two times a day and by the end of the third day you will have a nice amount of sprouts ready to go. We like to eat these gems at 2-3 days, but you can grow them further if you like, just keep in mind that they may outgrow the container! The kit comes complete with enough seeds to produce over 1/2 lb of sprouts to start. Peas are exceptional source of nutrients and this mix is exceptional tasting
