I’ve not quite had the success I was hoping for, half a pound,but that’s half a pound less than a week ago.
So beans have moved but I’m using a pea instead for the jar, well a mung bean to be precise. But in a way its still a good thing if it keeps me focused.
In fact while I had the bag of mung beans out, I decided to try sprouting some along with a few lentils too. I’m not quite sure how they will do, but I love to give these things a go. Sprouted lentils and beans are apparently high in vitamin c amongst other goodies, and just a tasty protein and carb addition to what can sometimes be a boring salad. It also neutralises phytic acid which stops the body from absorbing other nutrients like Iron, something that I’ve always had a low threshold for anyway. Its really easy to do, soak them over night an leave them somewhere to sprout, even I can do that!
There’s also recipes for using the sprouts too like this wheat bread http://trustedearth.com/2010/12/22/sprouted-lentil-wheat-bread-and-instructions/
At least my mushrooms are blooming though…
