It’s all about the sprouted grain products these days.
Why, you ask?
Turns out that when a seed is allowed to sprout and then is used in products such as bread, muffins, and flour (to name a few), you get a bunch of health benefits that un-sprouted products simply can’t offer. These health benefits include a whopping power punch of nutrients, reduce sugar content (lower glucose), and even reduced anti-nutrient content. When it comes to sprouted grain bread, it’s really the best way to go if you’re looking to reduce your sugar intake and increase your nutrient profile. Sprouted grain bread “seems to go hand-in-hand with the fermentation trend … thanks to the naturally occurring sprouting process.”
Plus, sprouted grain bread can be substituted for pretty much any other type of bread in any recipe, meaning you can still have that super yummy vegan cheese melt or avocado toast, just a tad bit healthier than before! Here are fifteen delectable recipes to use that new loaf of sprouted bread in!
