How to Grow Indoor Greens in Jars

by Andrea Baines

Broccoli_sproutsSome of the freshest and most nutritionally dense foods on the planet are raw sprouted seeds and micro-greens.  They are delicious, juicy and tender and can be added to salads, sandwiches, wraps, stir-fries and even a topping for soups and cooked meals.

snacking nutsWhen embarking on a raw food diet, or any diet for that matter, one of the first things to learn, or re-learn, is to ONLY eat when hungry.

Sounds simple, but sadly we are so programmed to reach for food left right and center, for many reasons other than hunger, that for most of us snacking serves as a well worn comfort blanket, and a hard habit to break, rather than a necessity.  But what can you eat when you are truly hungry and nuts just don’t hit the spot anymore?  (more…)
