Day 52 Sprout Salad

Sunflower seed sprouts were new to me when I went to the store to buy the alfalfa seed, but tonight we had salad that came off our shelves. Sunflower seed Sprouts have to grown in 1 inch of dirt for 7-10 days. Start by soaking the seeds, then spread them over the dirt and cover them with 8 layers of damp newspapers, place in a plastic sack, and set in a dark cupboard for 3 days. Transfer to a sunny windowsill for the next 7 days or until you cut the stems and green leaves for eating. I kept the plastic sack on to act like a little green house.

Breakfast: Cinnamon Toast, frozen pancakes layered with meat and cheese
Lunch: Chicken Salad Sandwiches and Peanut Butter and honey Sandwiches
Dinner: Homemade Cheese Pizza and Sprout salad with alfalfa sprouts and sunflower seeds

  1. Just think you are more than half way to your goal. You are doing so well and I love watching your progress. It is good to see that the long term storage is very much needed to be included with your 3 months supplies as well.
