Green Sprout Kit with organic sprouting seeds review


I like sprouts, especially alfalfa sprouts in my sandwiches and salads, but I don't like paying $3-$5 for a small container of sprouts. I have always wanted to sprout my own seeds and legumes but I never got the courage to do it. I was lazy and worried, but it turns out that sprouting at home is not complicated at all and it does not require too much of your time or energy. It does require some planning if you want a daily supply of fresh, delicious and nutritious sprouts though. Vegan Cuts sent me this awesome Green Sprout Kit that makes sprouting easy. 
This kit (gift set) includes two-quart glass sprouting jar (similar to a Mason jar) with stainless steel screen and solid cap. The screen cap is for draining and sprouting and the solid cap is for keeping sprouts fresh in the refrigerator after they are fully sprouted. There is also an organic cotton produce bag included. This bag is great for covering your sprouting jar to keep the light out. The kit also contains a sheet with instructions and a recipe, and a 4 oz container with organic lentil, mung and garbanzo sprouting beans. The sprouting jar is completely reusable and BPA-free. You can buy refills online or get any of your favorite legumes, beans or seeds locally. 
Embark on an exciting new culinary adventure when you sprout scrumptious lentils, mung, garbanzo beans, and more. You will discover easy to follow recipes for delicious new salad, smoothies, stir fry and stew creations. The Green Sprout Kit includes everything you need to sprout seeds and legumes, including recipes. The protein packed superfoods you grow will energize your body with enzymes and nutrients, while providing anti-aging antioxidants to make you glow from the inside out. Did you know that ounce for ounce sprouts contain more nutrients than any other whole food know? 



Get your Green Sprout Kit via Vegan Cuts for a special price with free shipping and handling! This kit makes an awesome Christmas present for your relatives, friends, coworkers, or yourself. You can have fresh sprouts for a fraction of the cost that you would pay for fully sprouted seeds at the grocery store. This Green Sprout Kit comes with 4 oz bag of lentil sprouting seeds, 4 oz organic mung bean sprouting seeds and 4 oz organic garbanzo bean sprouting seeds for more variety. 



Look at these little lentil babies, they don't know what transformation is awaiting them :-)

This is how my sprouts will look like in a few days :-)

  2. Common seeds for sprouting include alfalfa, fenugreek, lentils, peas, radish, and red clover. Mung beans have been sprouted in Asia for thousands of years, but take more equipment and time than other seeds. Other less common seeds include cabbage, broccoli, garbanzos, mustard seed, and quinoa. Most grains can grow chlorophyll rich grass crops, and grains without hulls can be used as short sprouts. Save garden seeds (radish is easy, just let them go to seed and harvest when dry and ripe). Caragana seeds make delicious sprouts. Spread a blanket or tarp by the bushes just before the pods pop open to catch the seeds.
