Sprouted seeds are a healthy food, cheap and available all year round. Their nutritional profile also surpasses that of virtually all foods. For long-distance sailors, for whom they are particularly appreciated, they are a space-saving, easy to preserve food that provides an unlimited supply of fresh food, rich in vitamins and minerals.

The preparation of germinated seeds is simple and requires little time. After a soaking phase of 1 to 2 days (depending on the hardness and size of the seed) the actual germination phase follows. For the latter, use an open container, without water (seeds need air to germinate), rinse them morning and evening, and leave them in the light if you want green shoots to show the tip of their nose.

Have fun tasting them at different stages (from the soaking phase to the growth stage): you will see that the taste changes and can determine which stage you prefer!
