Sprouting for health

I have been doing this off and on for about 8 months. I started with broccoli sprouts for the sufurafane. But damn you have to have a FARM A BUNCH of sprouts to get enough and they taste TERRIBLE! 100 grams of 3 day old sprouts contain 250mg of sufurafane.

A months worth of seeds is about $10-12 shipped. The spouting trays were about $16.

so I started 2 new sprouts. amaranth and alfalfa.

The amaranth matured quicker and I do not have a pic of them. they are really cool and purple/reg in color. The alfalfa has a mild flavor and is quite tasty on a sandwich. Normally I blend them in the ninja with a little protein powder and chug em.

Great way to get some beneficial compounds, isothiocyanates, minerals, micro nutrients and natural vitamins.

I will do broccoli sprouts again, but need a better way to grow large quantities.

I will ditch the alfalfa as it is not nearly as nutrient dense as many others.

I have found the worse they taste the better they are for you unfortunately but those beneficial compounds come at a price to my tongue.

Ebay, no worries about GMO as broccoli and such have not been lab altered like corn, soy, and dairy. (yep dairy is one of the biggest GMOs)

something like this. I have used this company with a 99%+ sprout rate as well as Todd's seeds which is really good.

hard to grow sprouts in the garden but if you are looking to grow broccoli, try todd's seeds. sprout them inside and plant them once they are ready in your garden. All organic non-gmo seeds

bro if you have time watch this vid. it is just damn hard to get in sufficient quantities to be beneficial. There may be a supp pill out there but sulforaphane degrades quickly so most would be useless.

sprouting broccoli seems to be the best way to get it.
