I Sprouted!!

Pin It Now! I am just so proud of myself!

I sprouted my long-grain brown rice for the very first time. I couldn't stop there. I sprouted some green split peas and red lentils.

I am a bit new to the sprouting thing but am always broadening my "natural and healthy foods" horizon. Sprouting has several health benefits. It just makes sense. Live foods are healthier than dead foods, and if it can sprout, you know it is "alive".

My mom is reading a book that says, "If it doesn't rot or sprout, you can do without."

Yeah, yeah, I know--M&Ms don't sprout.

If you are wrinkling your nose and furrowing your brow thinking, "what is she up to now?" you can go here to find some sprouting links.

You should try mung beans. They are seriously amazing. My kids actually ate them and asked for more. Of course, there was chicken and celery and onion and (gluten-free) soy sauce....but they loved it.

Either way, yay!

Hey there!

I am finally getting around to reading your last 30 posts (I'm a bit behind in blog reading but this computer is driving me crazy with its slowness!)

I laughed when I saw you just joined Facebook. I thought you had been on it for a while. I am a new Facebook person also. I am still learning my way around and am wondering at the rationality of it all. But my daughter wanted to be on it and I thought this would be a good way to keep an eye on her.

I love your garden posts. I used to be a master gardener in South Dakota. It's not going so well in Montana. I planted one tomato plant in a pail and put it in my wagon to carry in and out of the garage at night. I left it out and it froze on the 4th of July! Who knew? I foolishly loaned my little greenhouse to someone because I just wanted to do one tomato plant this year. Now I'm thinking I'll need the house to keep the tomato plant from dying. Crazy.

Aside from the slow computer (which really needs to get repaired before the school season starts), I, too, have been enjoying a season of being a mommy and not also a teacher. But I'm looking at school books and getting geared up for fall.

Ever eat the Ezekiel 4:9 cereals & breads? They are made from "sprouted" grains.
