Sprout Your Way to a Healthier You

I read an article talking about the health benefit of broccoli sprouts, apparently studies show that eating broccoli sprouts can help those who suffer from seasonal allergies or asthma by triggering an increase in inflammation fighting enzymes.

I've mentioned many times the importance of eating foods in their whole unprocessed form, but there are also many foods (Grains such as wheat and barley, Seeds such as broccoli, alfalfa, and brussels, and Legumes such as peas and mung beans) that you can benefit from by eating them in there "sprout" form.

Sprouts have been a part of human's diets since ancient times, and are often considered "Wonder Foods". The benefits of eating sprouts are endless; increased levels of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients with the added benefit of increased digestibility.

They are quite easy to grow at home and also available in many food stores, so there's no excuse why there not a part of your diet.
