For an inexpensive way to obtain fresh, nutrient-dense food, try sprouting.
Sprouts have been grown by many civilizations over the past 5,000 years.
Sprouts are rich with vitamins, minerals, proteins, and enzymes and deliver them in a form that is easily assimilated and digested.
Nutritional benefits of sprouts:
