Health Benefits of Radish Sprouts

I am not a big fan of radishes, but I am open to eating them as sprouts. Besides eating sprouts gives our bodies more nutrients than if we ate the food they would produce. The radish sprout has a spicy taste much like the vegetable it self.

Sprouting Radish Sprouts

3 Tbsp of sprouting seeds
1 Wide mouth mason jar
1 Sprouting jar screen

Put the seeds in the jar and fill the jar with the filtered water so the seeds are covered and let sit for 12 hours. After 12 hours with the screen still on dump out the water, fill the jar again and swish the jar around making sure to get all the seeds in the water, drain, and place upside down on an angle to drain, do this at least 3 times a day. This will produce 3 cups of sprouts by the 5th or 6th day.

Once the sprouts are done pour them in a big bowl with filtered water. The hulls will float to the top, pull them out and discard them. Some people do eat them it's up to you.

Using the Sprouts
All sprouts can be used the same way,  but one thing to remember with this sprout is it does have a spicy taste. Add to anything you would like to add a little spice to a salad, soup, stews, or on sandwiches. This is one sprout you might not want to add to a smoothie or juice.



Do you eat radish sprouts? What is your favorite way to use these sprouts? How would you use these sprouts?

Giveaway The Allergy Fighting Garden Book

While we are still in the winter months it may be time to start thinking about what is in our yards in the way of bushes, shrubs, trees, and other plants. This is important especially for those who suffer from asthma and or allergies. It is a good time to educate our selves on what is in our yards and how they effect our health.

About the Author

In the book The Allergy Fighting Garden author Thomas Leo Ogren teaches us about the various plant life and how it effects our health. Thomas has a degree in agricultural science, is a horticulturist, and former landscape gardener instructor, nursery owner, and gardening radio show host.

His Why

It was his wife who brought him on his journey of 30 years of research. She suffered from allergies and asthma and he witnessed the pain and misery it brought to her. Upon purchasing a new home he decided to do some research into which plants, trees, and shrubs were least likely to aggravate allergies. As Thomas searched for materials on the subject he realized none existed. That led him to do his own research one plant at a time where he learned more about botany, medicine, pollen, and the plant flowering system. This led him to create the Ogren’s allergy scale which rates plants, shrubs, and trees on a scale from 1 – 10.

This book is a wealth of information and everyone should have a copy in their collection of books.

The First 8 Chapters.

1. Botanical Sexism, and our current allergy crisis
2. How to Fight Allergies close to home
3. Understanding Plant Sex and its importance in allergies
4. Allergy – Blocking Hedges
5. Eliminating allergy-caing mold spores
6. Fighting Allergies in your neighborhood and city
7. Understanding OPALS (Ogren Plant Allergy Scale)
8. Using the A to Z Plant Listings

After Chapter 8

After chapter 8 there is an extensive list of shrubs, bushes, trees, and plants with a rating of how they rate for causing allergies. It is listed in alphabetical order according to the scientific name. There is also a glossary of horticultural terms, recommended reading, useful websites, pollen calendar, and a plant hardiness zone map.

Giveaway Time

This giveaway will run from Monday January 25, 2016 through Monday February 1, 2016.
