Written by Doug Evans, a pioneer in the plant-based health movement for over 20 years, and with a foreword by Joel Fuhrman, M.D., The Sprout Book empowers readers to embark on a plant-based way of eating that’s low-cost and accessible. The book shows us how easy it is to boost the nutrition of any snack, smoothie, or meal with sprouts.
Among the mind-blowing qualities of sprouts:
― they have 20–30 times the phytonutrients of other vegetables and 100 times those of meat
― they pack cancer-fighting properties and help to protect us from cardiovascular disease and environmental pollutants
― they aid in digestion
― they are a simple way to grow your own vegetables and are compatible with all diets
― they are incredible for regulating insulin levels
The forty recipes inside feature sprouts on top of raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, spices, sea vegetables, and top-quality cold-pressed vegetable oils for the healthiest diet possible. The Sprout Book includes informative interviews with leaders in functional medicine and nutrition including Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Joel Kahn and more. Use this book to change your diet and super-charge your health with one of the most nutrient-dense, sustainable foods on earth!
