Sprouts have been called nature’s healthiest food. Why? Sprouts are alive.
"Sprouts are said to be rich in digestible energy, bioavailable vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, and phytochemicals, as these are necessary for a germinating plant to grow."

Four Steps to Sprouting with Tony Hornick's Sprout Grower:
See a complete step by step process on Tony’s Fast and Easy Sprout Grower website.
- 1. Planting
- 2. Watering
- 3. Weeding (not really)
- 4. Harvesting
And what does all this have to do with PeapodLife? In the event that someone would ever have to survive only on what they were capable of growing in their own home, the addition of sprouts to their PeapodLife Building EcoSystem would provide vital energy, vitamins, minerals and fibre.
Of course, like any nutritional choice, it’s best to consume sprouts in moderation. And, like any agricultural or food preparation process, it is important to learn the correct technique to avoid the potential risks of over-consumption or inappropriate preparation and storage. For instance, sprouting in jars is not recommended, and potentially toxic. The best option is to purchase a dedicated sprouting device. PeapodLife recommends Tony Hornick’s Sprout Grower because it is inexpensive, easy to use, and its customers are always eager to give positive testimonials to better health and a lifestyle with regular use.
Building better nutrition begins in the home; and sprouting is the perfect companion to PeapodLife.
