Welcome to Sprouting & Growing!

Sprouts, Wheatgrass & Micro-greens

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the final week for participants in the 21 Day Raw Food Cleanse. We gathered today at Green Heaven to for a sprouting and growing workshop to learn to grow our own fresh, nutrient dense superfoods at home!

Gratia Watson, co-owner of Green Heaven, has been growing for 15 years. She appreciates the symbiotic relationship we all have with plants – They need us, and we need them.

The Sprout Jar Method

The Jar Method is a simple way of growing sprouts like Alfalfa, Red Clover, and Fenugreek. Simply soak the seeds overnight, then drain. Rinse twice a day. Leave your sprouting jar face-down on an incline.  In just 5-7 days your sprouts are ready for eating!

Wheatgrass, Micro-greens and Other Seeds

Did you know? One oz of fresh wheatgrass juice provides all the essential vitamins and nutrients (except omegas) you need for one day! It is a nutritional powerhouse. It also has potent alkalizing and detoxifying effects.

Add those Omegas!
Just 2 tablespoons of chia seeds provides your daily recommended dose.
Try adding soaked chia seeds to your homemade smoothies and lemonade!

2 Tbsp of soaked chia seeds + 1 oz wheatgrass juice = All vital nutrients for one day.

Wheatgrass & Micro-greens are easy to grow at home, requiring just growing trays, good quality soil, and a few days time. Trays of wheatgrass and micro-greens provide you with clean sourced, nutritious food that both tastes good and looks beautiful – straight from your own kitchen.

We feast with our eyes first.

Wrap Up

Gratia demonstrated that growing your own food doesn’t have to be complicated – or expensive! High quality living food can be cultivated by anyone with a few supples and a little instruction. It doesn’t require large amounts of space, or time. The results speak for themselves – Eat Superfoods, feel Super Good!
