Sprouts and Microgreens Salad

Especially in winter, sprouts and microgreens are ideal for providing us with plenty of vitamins and minerals. While vegetables and salads come from greenhouses, require long transportation routes and are relatively expensive, sprouts and microgreens can be grown at home on the windowsill. Here they’re under our direct care and are not chemically treated or irradiated.

Sprouts and microgreens are:

👉 nutrient-rich
👉 energy saving
👉 inexpensive
👉 pesticide-free

Dr. Brian Clement, director of the Hippocrates Wellness Institute, recommends that salads can consist of up to two-thirds sprouts and microgreens. When you read the recipe below, you may think, “this salad is very sprout and microgreen-heavy.” But just try it. It’s an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, secondary plant substances, chlorophyll and biophotons and is therefore extremely revitalizing.
