Bunnies and Sprouts
My friend Bill, of Bill and the Hot Birdchick Show, was over last night and showed me some pictures, and when I saw this one , I knew that I had to post it and say..." Captions, anyone??? " That is their rabbit , Cinnamin, on a brief foray into the hall of their apartment building.
I have been Sprouting today. Yes, 'tis true. Most people think of Sprouts in terms of either things they take off sandwiches , or some alfalfa they buy to make salads healthy. Not so with the Sprout People. www.sproutpeople.com . Sprouts are their life and they have something going on. Lentils, peas, beans , radish , broccili the list goes on. They also sell Easy Sprouters. ( but not to angry people, they have no interest in angry people so says the website. )
Now , I don't endorse things often ( corsets aside ) but you all ought to try sprouting. Soak the seends for 12 hours, rinse, the put them in a dark place ( sprout people have a list of music sprouts are most fond of as well , not amazingly they like the Greatful Dead, but I have been playing them my cd's for years and they seem to like me as well )
Then just rinse the little guys off once a day , spin off the excess water ( like a salad spinner, whirl around the kitchen, it's truly fun ) and in three days they have either turned into the alfalfa like things, or grown little tails, and are perfect for munching, salads or stir fry. The seriously most healthy thing on the planet that one can eat.
Try them. You will like them.
I am bringing Malena an Easy Sprouter and some seeds. It may change her life. And it is something to do in the winter, where ever you live.
( ok, so I might have a little to much time on my hands here in the North lately, but this is a great website, and you can't buy Sprouts like these in stores....)
Love and Sprouts,
