Can I tell you a secret?
Sometimes the best things come in the smallest packages.
Did you know that sprouts and microgreens (which are just tiny vegetables and beans that have just sprouted) can have 30 times more nutrients than fully grown vegetables?
And the levels of protein are much higher!

This is because more nutrients are needed when the sprouts are at early stages of growth.
So if you eat sprouts when they are tiny, you are putting massive amounts of nutrients into your body.
Here’s another secret that most people don’t know about sprouts, and a tip that I learned from Anthony William from Medical Medium….
Sprouts or any plants that you grow yourself at home are coated with something called elevated biotics which gives you an essential form of vitamin B12 that you can’t get from any supplement.
That’s why people can heal very quickly if they introduce sprouts or microgreens into their diet on a daily basis.
So how do you grow microgreens? I suggest starting with a kit like this. This is what I did and within a week I had a few trays of beautiful microgreens to liven up my salads.
They really are so easy to grow. I just spread some paper towels inside a tray and sprayed them with water until they were damp. I then scattered 2 teaspoons of seeds over the paper towels. After that I sprayed them morning and night every day and in a week they were ready to eat. I started a new tray every day and ate a whole tray of microgreens each day!
And once you have grown your microgreens. You might be wondering what to do with them?
I suggest sprinkling them on your salads and dinner, or trying one of the delicious meals below:

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
