4. Harvest & Re-Start

Finally, it’s time to harvest your sprouts!  Simple, quick, easy.  Cheap, too. So far you’ve spent about four minutes growing your sprouts (review posts 1, 2, and 3). The sprouts, on the other hand, have been busy growing and becoming a wonderful food source for […]

Sprouts for Breakfast?  You Betcha!!!

Sprouts for Breakfast? You Betcha!!!

IMG_0455I remember the first time I suggested sprouts for breakfast.  Everybody got that, “Who farted” look on their face!  It still elicits that same grimmace to first-timers! But trust me on this… it’s the best!

Here’s my breakfast this morning.  Nothing special for me.  A normal breakfast.  Almost every day I include fresh, home-grown sprouts into my breakfast.  It shoots up the nutrient level of the meal, increases the beauty and appetizing quotient, it increases the raw veggie quotient, and it just makes it all taste wonderfuller!

Sprouts for Breakfast!

I admit that I had too much toast.  I usually don’t have toast with my breakfast any more.  When I do, I usually only have 1 slice, lightly buttered.  But today?  I wanted 2.  I made 2. I ate 2.  When I eat healthy whole food as my body craves it, it’s for a good reason that I may not ever know. But my body knows what it wants.

Here’s my plate inventory for today’s breakfast:

  • 2 eggs, scrambled with 4 fresh, sauteed Gulf shrimp that were leftover from dinner last night.
  • Fresh tomatoes from the garden.
  • Half a small avocado.
  • A large dollop of fresh, home-grown Mung bean sprouts.
  • A medium handful of NOW Foods Zesty Sprouting Mix  that was grown with 40% broccoli sprouts!
  • And, as you already know, 2 slices of whole grain toast with light butter.
  • Not pictured, but beside the plate, was a bowl of fresh cut watermelon!

0621161242Lots of things aren’t perfect in this meal, depending on your food orientation.  But for me, it was wonderful.  Lots of raw veggies & fruit. Plenty of vibrant color, which, to me, means lots of nutritional value! And compared to how I used to eat, relatively small portions.

It’s a larger breakfast than I normally eat, as I’ve discussed above. Also, I usually only have one egg. And I rarely have any form of meat with my breakfast any more.  But, there it was and my body asked me nicely. So I did it.

0621161242aSprouting is a great way to increase the nutritional content of any meal. Today’s breakfast is one way.  Please share and enjoy this post as you think best.

Best health to my self-health friends! – Jim B

And a compulsive overeater! Jim’s a good example of recovery being possible for the “some of us are sicker than others” crowd!

In this book, the author recounts important and memorable lessons learned in his recovery. Each story will give the reader new insights into his/her own recovery. “If my readers gets one single new idea out of this book,” quips Jim, “It’s worth the price of admission… and then some!”

Good reading, fun accounts, anecdotes, slogans, sponsorship, meetings, steps, spirituality, treatment centers, relationships in recovery, employment, prosperity, and dozens of other components that make up a day in recovery are discussed. Something for everyone, new in recovery and old timers alike!

Great gift idea! Great for people in any recovery program/s and for people who are contemplating joining a recovery program! It’s a meeting in a digital format… got a few minutes? Glean some new perspectives for your own recovery!
