There’s no lazy gal shortcut when it comes to growing sprouts, it’s just straight up that easy that any old lazy gal can get to sproutin’ at home in no time flat.

All I did was buy my little sprouting jar (which isn’t even necessary, you can use a nut milk bag or a regular mason jar) and some seeds.

Step 5

Rinse seeds twice a day by refilling the jar with water, swirling around gently, draining and re-inverting the jar again.

Done!


In the winter I don’t like eating too much salad due to its cooling nature and my naturally frozen icicle body #thyroidproblems. With my handy dandy fresh sprouts I still get some nice and fresh green things in my life.

Speaking of green things, avocado on toast is so hot right now. I decided to spruce mine up with some hummus and SPROUTS! Easy peasy, tasty and nutritious.
