We LOVE Broccoli Sprouts! They are so nutritious and so easy to grow. Broccoli sprouts have so many benefits.
Here are a few wonderful things about broccoli sprouts:
They are anti-inflammatory
They promote cardiovascular health
They help with digestion
They are great for bringing down insulin resistance
They are good for respiratory health
AND my favorite!!!
THEY can PREVENT cancer!
We include broccoli sprouts when we puree veggies for our pooches. I just feel like I am giving them a super punch of nutrition. I have included a video to show how easy they are to grow right at home. From the time you plant the tiny seed to harvest is about 10 to 14 days. They stay good in the fridge in an airtight container for about a week.
Here is a little blurb from an article Dr. Axe wrote:
- Broccoli sprouts are a surprisingly powerful little food with thoroughly researched health benefits. Most notably, they have been shown to significantly impact several types of cancers.
- This and other benefits of broccoli sprouts are often related to the sulforaphane they contain, a protein found in these sprouts between 10 and 100 times more often than mature broccoli.
- Sulforaphane from broccoli sprouts is associated with heart health, strong bones, fighting H. pylori infection, detoxification, respiratory health, support in multiple sclerosis, and even brain protection from traumatic injury or stroke.
- I prefer to grow my own broccoli sprouts, since it’s such a simple process and gives me the chance to eat them super fresh. Try them on salads, burgers, with noodles or even as part of a smoothie.
