There are lots of great reasons to sprout! When soaked, seeds begin the sprouting process which increases their nutrient profile considerably. Sprouting also increases enzyme activity, allowing greater absorption of nutrients by the body and increased digestibility.
Sprouting is dead live easy! Grab a large jar, put your seeds in and soak them overnight. In the morning, pour off the water and give them a good rinse. If you don’t have a sprouting jar with a mesh lid, just cut a piece of chux cloth or a juice bag and grab a rubber band to secure it over the mouth of the jar.
A couple of times a day, rinse and drain. After about 2-3 days, little tails will appear on the sunflower seeds, they are now ready to use.
