On November 25, 2011 we held an event we called Upaya Sprout in Toronto and our speaker was none other than Steve the “Sproutman”. He was his usual charming self and he presented information on how to live healthy by eating raw foods. It’s amazing how a little sprout can be so good for you and yield a large amount.

Sprouting is something anyone can do, there are many different items to sprout and here are two methods to do so.

1. Bag method

Here are instructions right from the Sproutman site:

  • Easy! Just Dip n’ Hang (or lay in a bowl)
  • Dip twice per day. Takes less than 1 min.
  • Watch them grow. Ready as soon as 4-5 days.
  • Grows mung, lentil, chick pea, green pea, adzuki, and more.
  • Grows wheat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut, quinoa, sesame, millet.
  • Grows broccoli, alfalfa, clover, radish, chives.
  • Grows chia, arugula, flax, cress, psyllium.
  • Expands or contracts according to how much you wish to grow.
  • 1 lb of beans can yield 5 lbs of bean sprouts.
  • Size (dry) is 7 x 11 inches.
  • Hangs on any hook or knob.
  • Durable. Lasts for over 1000+ growing cycles.
  • Also makes Nut Milk and…
  • Stores produce. Breathable weave extends the life of produce.

 We will have these bags this weekend at the Raw Vegan Festival if you’d like to buy one, do so at the show for a great price, you might want a few to grow different sprouts at the same time.

2. Soil Free Wheatgrass Tray Grower Method

At only 13″ x 19″, this versatile, space-saving grower kit is small enough to sit on any kitchen counter. The 3-tray kit is stacked to preserve counter space. If you need more Wheatgrass – just add more trays. Stack your grower up to 10 trays high and yield up to 10 pounds of grass.

Each tray yields approximately 1 pound of wheatgrass. Results will vary depending on how densely you pack the seeds and how tall you harvest your grass. One pound of grass should yield about 12 ounces of juice.

2. Automatic Sprouter Method

Just add water. It’s automatic, easy to use and costs only pennies a day to run. After adding the seeds, the sprouter delivers a continuous supply of fresh water and air to provide a simple, convenient way of growing fresh, tender and live sprouts in the convenience of your own home. Sprouts have a high concentration of proteins, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and maximum nutrition in a small package. The blue part in the middle of the sprouts at the top disperses the water as required and takes the guess work out of sprouting.
