Today’s Health newsletter is all about sprouts, nuts, seeds which are alive with enzymes. We need enzymes now more than ever as we enter the fall season when we are inside much more.
Sprouting makes nuts, seeds, and legumes come alive with enzymes and exponentially more nutritional content. This is why sprouts were a key ingredient in my anticancer diet. I ate them twice a day every day on my Giant Cancer-Fighting Salad. My go-to sprouts are broccoli seeds, mung beans, lentils, and garbanzo beans. Even though it is colder weather, salads are still important for us to enjoy. Add grilled chicken, hard boiled eggs, nuts, seeds, sprouts, beans, onions, garlic along with a hot bowl of soup.
As a sprout lover, I thought it would be fun to interview Doug Evans, author of The Sprout Book. Doug is a pioneer in the natural food industry. In 2002, he co-founded Organic Avenue, one of the first exclusively raw, organic, plant-based retail chains in the country.
Doug recently wrote The Sprout Book to teach people about the incredible power of sprouts. Sprouting is the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way to grow your own food and Doug’s mission is to help you get excited about growing and eating the most nutrient-dense food on the planet… sprouts!
