Sunflower Sprouts

Super Sprouts

I often buy sunflower sprouts at the market, and I’m thinking about growing them myself in a jar or shallow tray of soil. They are loaded with vitamins and minerals, and pack a surprising dose of protein. In fact, 3 ounces of sunflower seeds contain about 20 grams of protein, almost the same as chicken. Isn’t that interesting? They taste rich, crisp and nutty. I’m going to pick up some raw sunflower seeds this weekend and sprout them. I’ll keep you posted.

      Jack, you’re back! There must be a clever sentence with your name and been/bean stalk/ing but I can’t assemble one. I’m so looking forward to seeing you soon and talking about some of that food you’ve been eating. Impressive.
