Herbs in the Kitchen
Spring Smoothie with Sprouts

  

I've recently really gotten into sprouts. Because of some tummy issues with my eldest daughter we've gotten really into gut health in our house. There is a guy at our farmers market that all he does is different types of sprouts. If you don't know much about sprouts here is a quick synopsis...they contain a high content of living enzymes making them great to repopulate gut bacteria and help with digestion. I've been putting a big handful in everyones smoothie each morning. I do the broccoli sprouts which have a very mild basically watery taste. You'd never know they are in there. They are also very popular as a garnish but I wanted all of us to consume a hardy amount of them so in a smoothie they go. If you're brave enough here is my epic digestion smoothie. Nothing is ever measured so work with me.

Here are a few things I learned about sprouts ...
-They increase nutrient absorption 
-Increases protein availability
-Increases antioxidants and enzymes 
-Can breakdown gluten for easier digestibility

Smoothie Recipe ...
-Frozen blueberries
-Frozen spinach (farmers market)
