I love sprouts because they are veggies I can grow at home and harvest faster. I sprout sunflower seeds, mung beans, soy beans, alfalfa, wheatgrass, pop corn,peanuts and chia. There are many tutorials on Youtube how to grow them. I dont buy lettuce anymore because I replaced it with sprouts, since they tasted similar and more fresh, These plants are babies, so eating them gives you their youth.

I have eaten sprouts. Don't know the answers to your other questions, but I would guess there is benefits to including greens in your diet. Your post reads like "inquiring minds want to know, lol." A very different topic of discussion and from Deborah's answer, one worthwhile eating.

I really love sprouts and do grow my own. Fenugreek is my favorite. Yes they are highly nutritious. It is said that sprouts have 12 x the nutrition of mature leaves. I believe that is also true of sprouted nuts which are also known as soaks.
