Nutrition + Wellness™ Workshop: Sprouting & Greens
(suitable for all-levels)
- Research indicates that consuming sprouts may support cardiovascular health, bone mineral density, contain anti-cancer potential, protect DNA against free radicals, and help treat diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, & arthritis. Research from the University of Ulster has shown that 100 grams of sprouts a day may prevent Cancer. The International Journal of Applied Science declared sprouts to have the highest concentration of phytonutrients per calorie of any food. Phytonutrients are absolutely vital to your health and work synergistically in a way supplements simply cannot mimic.
- The sprouting process alters the nutritional content by reducing fat, gluten, and ghrelin, the hormone that signals hunger. It also eliminates tannins, aflotoxins, and phytic acid, which disrupts the absorption of essential minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc. Sprouts are an enormous reservoir of antioxidants, omega 3-fatty acids, essential vitamins, proteins, and our good friend fiber, fueling your body with clean energy while satiating hunger to make you feel fuller longer.
- Not only do these tiny treasures decrease your appetite, they also aid weight loss by increasing the digestibility of protein, lowering your glycemic index, alkalizing your body, and acting as potent metabolic booster. If you could choose one food to integrate into your daily routine, sprouts are the clear winner.
- Sprouting is quick, easy, affordable, and takes up little space. Incorporating this simple practice will provide a life-time of benefits to your health and well-being.
