Sprouts and the June Salad-a-Day Challenge

These two salads were phenomenal- filling, fiber and protein rich, crunchy and satisfying. The common theme between the two? Sprouts!

This salad contained:
English cucumbers
alfalfa sprouts
sprouted red lentils
sugar snap peas (Just recently got into these- omg are they good. Crunchy, sweet, perfect road trip food or for munching on during a movie.)
nutritional yeast
olive oil
lemon juice
freshly ground salt and pepper

This one was a small salad, but a mighty one! It was almost ALL sprouts, with the addition of tomato:
red lentil sprouts
alfalfa sprouts
broccoli sprouts
chickpea sprouts
sunflower seed sprouts
mung bean sprouts
fennugreek sprouts
lemon juice
olive oil
freshly ground salt and pepper

Sprouts are nutritionally rich. As in, CRAZY good-for-you. They have so many vitamins, mineral, protein and fiber packed into such a tiny package. As with all vegetables, it is best to get a variety of them- different kinds contain different nutrients.

Do you eat sprouts? What kinds and how often?
