Sprouts, Hippocrates, Ann Wigmore?

I think this might have been mentioned a few months ago, but I can't find it. We need the URL for Sprouting, the Hippocrates Diet, and maybe Ann Wigmore's health institute followers. We have the old book, but want updated information. Sprouting is an easy, no-electricity way of getting live food, enzymes, etc. There are "new" grains, so we'd like an updated chart.

Is anyone else doing sprouts or planning to?

BTW, broccoli sprouts are the #1 anti-cancer food and are pretty tasty. Anybody know where to get the seeds and the best way to sprout them? Thanks!

You can get them at: http://www.sprouthouse.com/products.html

They're a bit expensive, at $6.95/quarter pound, so I might go to:


their item number SED-12030, where they are $11.49 a pound.

The sprouthouse gives you information on sprouting.

its great to hear that others are interested in this ideal food. we're also looking to purchase sprouts at reasonable pricing, so if you hear of any good sources let me know and i'll do the same.

so far we've purchased alfalfa, buckwheat, mungbean and amaranth. we only know of the sprouthouse, but will try the other link mentioned here. let us know how u make out.

As an old hippie who discovered sprouts in the 60's and fell in love with them, I can't think of a better way to get nutrition that is delicious. If you live near an Amish or Mennonite store, you will find excellent, organic seeds for sprouting. Most times they are much cheaper too.

When my GI friend was running to the supermarket for bay leaves, and paying 2 or 3 dollars for a small spice jar, I bought three times as much at the Mennonite store for 70 cents.
