My most popular youtube video is STILL the one of me showing you how to grow your own broccoli sprouts from like 2-3 years ago.
🥦Why broccoli sprouts?
1. 3-4 day old broccoli sprouts have up to 100x the amount of sulforaphane as mature broccoli.
2. Sulforaphane is a potent cancer-fighting, detox boosting, and antibacterial compound found in cruciferous vegetables and sprouts.
🚨Benefits of broccoli sprouts:
🔹help protect against cancer
🔹benefit the heart
🔹boost the brain
🔹support natural detoxification AND estrogen detox!
Instructions For Growing Your Own Sprouts:
Step 1: Add 1/2 a cup of organic broccoli sprout seeds to a mason jar and cover with filtered water. Let sit overnight.
Step 2: The next morning, drain your seeds and rinse one time with filtered water. Let as much water out as you can through the sprouting top, then let them drain in a bowl like this. You will rinse and drain morning and night for 4-ish days.
Step 3: Continue rinsing and draining morning and night and a couple days in your sprouts start to look like this!
Step 4: Continue to rinse and drain morning and night for 4-ish days or whenever your heart desires. You need a minimum of 3-4 days to get all the sulforaphane benefits, but that’s it!
Step 5: You want to do one final rinse and drain on your sprouts then I like to lay them out on a paper towel or cloth towel on a cookie sheet to dry for a couple hours. You can also throw them in a salad spinner to get some of the seeds out if you want, but not 100% necessary.
Step 6: Once your sprouts are pretty dry, store them in a mason jar in the fridge for up to a couple weeks or throw them in the freezer.
Now enjoy them on any food you like!
