Summer Sprouting Specials from The Sprout House.
Hello Sprouters !
I hope you are doing well and are sprouting everyday. For myself, that daily time of rinsing and draining is an opportunity to reflect and meditate; a calming few precious moments in my life.

It is going to be a great summer because we can all sprout to supplement our home gardens, farmers' market purchases, CSA goody bags / boxes and grocery store veggies. Sprouts are great additions to your delicious summer veggies AND they can be eaten by themselves, too. Toss a handful of sprouted beans or greens into most summer dishes to add texture, flavor, and great nutrition.

Don't forget to check out our BLOG with original artwork (like the Sprout Goddess featured above) and poetry by Andrea G. We also have posts that answer questions and easy recipe ideas. Lots of delicious ways to enjoy your mature sprouts. Case in point is this recipe for Spicy Quinoa. I add sprouted leafy greens for a cooling contrast.

I am late to the game of savory breakfast oatmeal but recently I came up with one that works for me. It is almost as good as my usual Oatmeal and Raisins. Which is actually called Rita's Raisins with some Oatmeal, in my house. I like raisins, what can I tell you.

Here's my new go to oatmeal:
Bottom of the bowl has chopped raw carrots (or a crunchy veggie of your choice)
Layer of sprouted beans
Layer of wakame flakes (dulse works, too)
Cooked oatmeal that has
1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil mixed into it
Add a side salad of freshly sprouted greens

Summer Sprouting
Summer gives us an abundance of fresh veggies from different sources. Use this time of year to reset your body and give it the nutrition it wants and needs. Lots of leafy green veggies that include sprouts can help your body feel better. Once you get into the habit of eating more greens during this time of year, it will stay with you in the winter months. Don't forget to share your sprouts and extra veggies. It may be old hat to you to eat sprouts everyday, but for some people your act of kindness can open a new world.
