Some simple tips and instructions for the
Best Raw Vegan Sprout Mix by Victoria Vesterlund!
1/3 cup Raw Sunflower Seeds (without shell)
1/3 cup Lentils (green, black, brown, french)
1/3 cup Mung Beans
You can really do any amount you wish simply keeping the 1/3 ratio, or one part of each equal between all 3 ingredients. Victoria uses a simple plastic container that is 3-4 times bigger than the dry amount fills to make room for the soaking and sprouting. Early in the morning when you wake up place each ingredient in the container, rinse with water and then fill to cover with double the amount of water compared to the sprout mixture. Let sit all day, in the evening before bed drain the water completely (its great for watering plants), rinse and let sit on the counter overnight. the next morning rinse and let sit all day. The sprouts will be ready to eat for dinner that day or if you prefer you can rinse again before bed and let grow another 12 – 24 hours or to your desired sprout size.
This simple and delicious sprout mix is loaded with nutrition, costs a fraction of any greens or veggies you can get at the store and goes great on top of almost any dish. If you are looking for the freshest living foods you can get then sprouts are the ticket, rich in easily absorbed amino acids, omegas and simple carbs, this sprout mix is sure to satisfy. Victoria mentions she enjoys it as a great snack or travel food. A cool travel and or hiking hack that Victoria mentioned is to mix this sprout mix with some raisins for a living raw trail-mix!
I hope you really enjoy the interview, that you try out this amazing raw vegan sprout mix (it really is the best raw vegan sprout mix imho too) and that you check out more from Victoria in the links above!
