Not sure where to ask this question... But...was given one of those multi  level "sprouters" tonight by a friend... What can I sprout that is beneficial to a nonnie? I know bean sprouts are out, but there must be something that I could grow?  
Is wheat ok to sprout - think I read you can do that (ie bread made from sprouted wheat is better than straight wheat?) Thanks for any help...

O nons should avoid alfalfa sprouts.

Sprouted mung beans are neutral for O nons.

Lentils sprout easily and are okay for O nons.

Sprouted wheat and wheat grass should be okay.

Sprouted wheat bread like Essene is okay - only when it contains no other avoid ingredients.

You could try sprouting radish seeds and broccoli seeds.  I got mine from the Health Food Store.  They're organically grown, and specific for sprouting.  Mine are bioSnacky with A.Vogel on the label too.  I've boughten the seeds but haven't tried sprouting them yet.  I have had the broccoli sprouts & radish sprouts from the grocery store though, and I like them with my salads.

Thanks so much guys!! I am particularly interested in sprouting, 'cos it should generate a ready supply of nutritious greens - I am bad at eating enough fresh vegs, except lettuce...
I buy them with good intentions, but when I get in late from work & go for frozen, if any, out of convenience... then the vegs I buy tend not to be the freshest when I do get around to eating them..
I also have another query... re red/orange vegs Most - carrots, pumpkin - tend to be high GI... I react to capsicum & tomatoes...& corn is definitely off the list What apart from kumara is ok for a gatherer to eat?
Cheers!!

I just noticed Gatherers have Fenugreek as a diamond!!! These seeds sprout so well and they are so yummy.  I have used them heaps in the past, but now they are a black dot in my Swami.  
In the tubers, gatherers have Yam an Taro as beneficials.  I have seen lots of Taros in the supermarkets these days.  On the neutrals Sweedes (yellow turnips) and Turnips are also available.  To add splashes of red serve them with grated red onions, steamed red stem spinach (beneficial) or swiss chards (neutral?) (or their raw younger leaves).  Throw in the beneficial purple basil for a bit of colour depth.

But, if it is really red and orange that you want, you can sautee your beneficial diamond tubers in beneficial Ghee with sprinkling of Turmeric Saffron and/or Paprika (all in the beneficial list).  Yummmy ...

a beneficial relish for those who can have fenugreek seeds!

all curry, when traditionally done contains ground fenugreek as well

I sprout all my grains, seeds and legumes......excellent!
except rice

and make my focaccia, from mixing a couple ......flax goes in as well, but not regularly.

Mung beans don't sprout nicely in those multilevel machines. They need to be packed tight to be nice and thick. Also too much light makes them ugly. I don't think mung beans are diamond food for explorer (nonnie) Os, but maybe sprouting makes all the difference. Azuki beans sprout too as long as they are organic and dried gently. I don't really like those multi level ones - there's too many risks involved. Water travels through all the levels for example. Wheat will rot if it gets too wet, I think any grain will. Even rice has the same dry technique when sprouting but needs to be rinsed several times a day. I'm sure there are handbooks about sprouting like some macrobiotic book, just can't think of any in English. You are a nonnie like me so should avoid any hint of mold in food and sprouting is a great opportunity to prepare moldy food Having said that I have to confess owning a tiny indoor hydroponic plant myself. Not much success in growing anything from a seed but you can buy salad in a tiny pot and keep it growing once you get it home.

The lentils I sprouted last week were delicious.

Both sprouted and otherwise, lentils are diamonds for me.  Is it true for the same number (not weight since they grew) that sprouted beans carry more nutrition than the soaked beans themselves?  I am thinking of exchanging my daily habit of boiled beans for fried sprouts.

frying only ups your daily oil consumption which isn t all that high anyways, right?

I simply cook my sprouted beans like I would normal beans.....they re delicious!

Quoted from Ribbit

Yes the sugars that can be hard to digest will turn into easier ones. I would go as far as saying beans will move into vegetables in categories Vitamin content will go up while protein goes down.

For those of us who would like to rely on beans for our protein (at least for one meal a day), would it still be possible even with sprouting?  Or might that be an individual thing?

Pulses will hold loads of water once sprouted so in comparison to dried beans they don't look very nice but I guess it's very difficult to avoid getting enough protein by eating anything bean related. Protein content of lentils may go down as much as from 24,4g/100g to just 8g/100g and mung beans from 24g to 4g with 89g of water. So the portion tends to be huge unless you want to prepare your sprouts by blending them into shake.

sprouting gives your compliant seed, nut or grain yet more potential!
