Many of us wish to be self-sufficient, but we don't all own farms or have the space to raise our own food. I live in an apartment, and I enjoy going out on the veranda every morning to collect fresh herbs. Even if you don't have a balcony, anything you do to cultivate your own is wonderful. Why not start sprouting seeds and beans to have an unending supply of micro greens?
Sprouting is extremely helpful to your health, aside from the satisfaction of growing your own food. A sprout is the young stage of a plant, and eating them provides your body with vitamins, enzymes, and other nutrients. Shoots are best eaten raw, and they go well in salads, eggs, smoothies, and the classic avocado on toast.
