Wellness Tip: Alfalfa sprouts

Alfalfa is a remarkable and simple plant to grow. Alfalfa sprouts can be grown at home, any time of the year, regardless of temperature and climate, and they grow in about 7 days.

Simple growing instructions can be found at a local health store or nutrition website. Alfalfa sprouts provide low calorie, highly bioavailable nutrients including: phytoestrogens, protein, fiber, vitamin C, folate, potassium and calcium. Sprouts can also be purchased at the grocery store or health foods market. Sprouts are an excellent addition to sandwiches, salads, soups or mixed into fresh vegetable juices.
