Sprouts the Miracle Food; The Complete Guide to Sprouting 1999 Editionby Steve Meyerowitz, Michael Parman
Sprouts The Miracle Food. The Agriculture of Tomorrow is Here Today. Our grandparents bought their food from the local farm. Today, it flies in on airplanes after being sprayed with chemicals, irradiated and genetically altered. It's enough to topple the Jolly Green Giant....or give him cancer. Can we keep our food pure, fresh, local, and available year round? Yes! For the price of beans! As the world population multiplies, the kitchen of tomorrow will grow food in addition to preparing it. Why wait? The secrets to creating self-sufficient, organic meals are just pages away.

Read an Excerpt
Not all of us can be gardeners. But we all eat. Fact is, if you don't grow your own, someone has to do it for you. Not a bad concept, but in reality, we're on the losing end. A trip to the supermarket proves it. The lettuce is lifeless; the spinach is wilting and dark around the edges. You don't dare eat the fruit for fear of fumigants, fertilizers, pesticides and the like. As a nation, we're eating less and less of the healthiest foods on the planet-fresh fruit and vegetables. Where are the fruits and vegetables? For the most part, you'll find them in the canned food aisle. No wonder kids grow up never liking their vegetables! Of course, you could shop at the health food store. But organic produce some-times cost more than you want to spend-if you can find it at all. Unfortunately, we don't all live in southern California and we don't all have the time or means to garden.
Here's where apartment gardening comes in. Every week a new harvest of fresh baby greens matures right in your own kitchen. No tools to buy, no big investment in garden equipment, no bugs or weather to worry about and no dirt. One pound of indoor lettuce takes up just 9 inches of counter-top space and one actual minute of care per day. Just dip and set. Light is no problem-normal daylight is all you need. For such little effort, the possibilities are magnificent--- 30delicious varieties of fresh, nutritious indoor greens and baby vegetables, enough to feed the whole family!
