My Sprouting Journey: I Couldn't Resist! And I'm Glad I Didn't!
You can see that it comes with 3 Sprouting Packets and 3 Trays!
I have been pondering a bit of crafting again and starting with Vision Boards. Maybe on a Monthly Basis. This would be GREAT to include in this month's Vision Board. It's plain and simple but inspiration just to look at it.
I tend to go in spurts with sprouts! If you have been a blogging buddy of mine for a while you might already know this about me. Previous Posts on Sprouting: Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, and Here. Oh yeah and Here, Here, Here, and Here! HaHa!
I'm sprouting at work and not at home. This time of year I have found unexpected guests in years past and I don't want to encourage that this year.
I'm not sure why but my office at work I have come to be VERY fond of for many reasons. One is the windows and natural light. Not that you need these things for sprouting but I just thought I would mention it. Another being that I have had a lot of luck with various plants growing around my office space so I figured I would try it!
This is the Protein Powerhouse Sprout Mix that came with the kit. The Mix has Adzuki, Garbanzo, Pea, and Mung.
My goal is to have sprouts going throughout the week - all week long - and break on the weekend. Another goal is to snack on them throughout the day and include them in my lunches.
Next week I hope to have all of the trays sprouting at the same time. This week I only did the one tray.
I mentioned that I would be sprouting all week and taking a break on the weekends while I'm not at work...I have a plan for that, too! I'll take any leftover home for the weekend!
I think these are really reachable goals. I will post progress here for sure!
On the box of the kit, it said their website is HandyPantry.com but it forwards to another site now. It's now under the direction of True Leaf Market.
True Leaf Market website I have already fallen in LOVE with it!
I know I will learn a lot but I will probably be so intrigued with their other products that I will have to look into buying some more of them!
I have also been storing my other sprouting seeds in a cool, dry place for a while now so I will be busting those out soon! PLUS...the ban on selling sprouting seeds in the state of PA has been lifted! YAY! I still can't believe that they were banned for 2 or 3 years. They made it illegal to sell sprouting seeds in the state. Other seeds were still ok but not seeds that were specifically geared toward sprouting sprouts! Oye!

That's so cool that you're sprouting. I love sprouts so much, and every time I buy them I tell myself I could sprout myself and save so much money. I can't wait to hear all about this journey!ReplyDelete
So far I'm totally loving this new product and new outlook on sprouting! I'm sure I will posting more soon!Delete
This is so cool! I've long wondered about these sprouting kits because I do love sprouts, but am very wary of those sold in grocery stores. They're one of the most common sources of salmonella since they're so susceptible, and always eaten raw, so I almost never buy them any more. Maybe it's about time I broke down and took matters into my own hands. You've certainly made it look easy enough, and highly rewarding!ReplyDelete
That's (one of the reasons) why the sprouting seeds were banned in my state because of the possible bacteria connection but I figure that can happen with anything (like chicken and they don't ban that). I think as long as we take special care and concern with them and keep them rinsed and clean and out of the way of everything else we should be fine.Delete
Wow. Your sprouts look amazing. I can't believe they grew so fast!ReplyDelete
I was so thrilled the sprout time was shorter than usual. This week I'm doing alfalfa!Delete
Me too with sprouts, sometimes I'm really into them and others I forget about the sprouting jar! That's great that you're into them, fresh last so much longer and are great in salads and smoothies.ReplyDelete
I tried making a soup with them over the weekend and it didn't turn out well! LOL - but I think it's because it was a sweet soup. I'm not into sweet soups (unless it's an Apricot Lentil). The one I tried making was with coconut and sproutsDelete
I tried sprouting but I am too lazy and they usually go bad. I am hoping it will be a "fun project" for my kid to when he gets older. Put him to work ^__~ReplyDelete
I did have a few of mine go bad from last week but I think it was because it was a mix for 4 or 5 different big beans! This week I am sprouting Alfalfa and I know I will eat those as a snack throughout the day once they are sprouted with no trouble at all!Delete
