Are you searching for an easy way to attain access to superior nutrition vegetables at your own leisure, economically and without being subject to the seasons, growing times, accessibility and prices in stores? If this sounds good to you, then it is time to consider looking at a sprouter and growing your own sprouts!
Volume food production nowadays involves the use of chemical pesticides, fertilizers and depleted soil that returns food that is both light in nutrient and contains damaging toxins for the body. Organic foods rely on more natural processes like companion cropping, rotating crops, green manures and resting patches of soil to allow for favourable, sustainable soil conditions and foods higher in nutrients. The consequence of this though is smaller yield and elevated costs that are inevitably passed on to the consumer. Although one could reasonably argue that purer food is well worth the additional money, for many people the price of organic food places the possibility of consuming a more healthy diet further out of their reach.
This is where growing sprouts comes in. Sprouts offer the ultimate in freshness, accessible right in your kitchen at a cost less than most regular vegetables, making them a workable solution for any situation. Seed costs vary per pound, but generally you can grow a pound of fresh vegetables in a few days for anywhere from 15 cents to 1 dollar per pound. With some simple preparation and daily rinsing, you can have foods grown using only the water from your house and journeying from your kitchen to the table, instead of hundreds or even thousands of miles. Kids enjoy sprouting, and can learn how to do it very simply.
With a easy set up of a few jars with screen lids, you simply rinse the seeds 2 to 3 times a day, drain out the water, and place the jar on its side! For some people, their schedule does not allow time for daily rinsing and sprouts left too long can spoil. There are alternative sprouters that improve drainage and air flow over the standard glass jar method. Sprouting trays and some sprouter devices (even the expensive ones) are still prone to mold though and require extensive washing between batches of sprouts.
The Seeds of Sustainability team have taken the whole process a step further and created a revolutionary new method of growing sprouts that requires no daily rinsing at all! The Marche Sprouting Method was developed by Master Sprout Alchemist Robin Marche, through twenty years of research, experimentation and development of sustainable farming methods. The system uses a basic yet highly effective method of moisture regulation that eliminates the need for daily rinsing and the hazard of bacteria growing to spoil your sprouts and therefore renders an ideal sprouter alternative for a very low cost. Learn the simplistic method, set it up and 3 days later you have as little or as much fresh sprouts as you would like, for a little over the cost of the grain or seed.
