Growing Sprouts at Home

I aspire to be a gardener one day, but until that day, I will have to settle for sprouting. I love it! It is fun, I include my kids, and I get a crop every 5 days (more than that if I start batches on different days). Sprouts have one of the highest concentrations of nutrition per calorie of any food. By sprouting seeds, nuts, grains, and beans, you awaken them from their dormant state, and you can have vitamins, minerals, live enzymes, antioxidants, chlorophyll, and protein right there in your kitchen at any time of the year. Have them in salads, sandwiches, stir fries, soups, or by themselves.  My 6-year-old just grabs them while she waters them and sticks them in her mouth.  I, on the other hand, have to have a little something to go with them.  My latest favorite recipe is here.  To help me grow my sprouts, I use the Sprout Garden.  I was a little intimidated about growing sprouts at first.  So if any of you are like me, here is a slideshow to take you through the process:
