A Key Food to Grow With Limited Space

As a cabal of technocratic elite battle for control of the world’s resources, global systems of food and energy production are being increasingly targeted and dismantled. This is all part of The Great Reset, a decades-old plan from the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) to seize control of wealth and resources.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that severe food shortages are coming and appear to be inevitable, more or less worldwide. Further, whatever food is available will continue to go up in price. That’s why now is a crucial time to learn new methods of self-sufficiency and resiliency. I describe them as “new” methods, but many of them are actually not new at all and could more aptly be described as “old-fashioned.”

One such method — growing your own food — is something I encourage virtually everyone to take part in. Even if you have limited space, it’s possible to grow quite a bit of food to feed yourself and your family. One food that requires very minimal space, yet packs a powerful nutritional punch, is sprouts.

Reasons to Eat Sprouts, a Living Food

Recently, I’ve embraced some of the components of a nose-to-tail carnivore diet as highlighted by Dr. Paul Saladino.1 One premise is that the notion that all plant foods are beneficial may need to be revisited and revised. For instance, plant lectins can have harmful effects by binding to specific receptor sites on your intestinal mucosal cells and interfering with the absorption of nutrients across your intestinal wall.2

However, sprouts and microgreens offer unique benefits due to the fact that they’re in their initial and early phase of growth. During this time, the plants contain more concentrated amounts of nutrients, making them far more nutrient-dense than their full-grown vegetable counterparts, providing higher amounts of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and health-promoting phytochemicals.

As a result, you need to eat far less, in terms of amount, compared to a mature plant. Another benefit is that sprouts can also contain up to 100 times more enzymes than their full-grown counterparts, which allows your body to extract higher levels of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients from other foods, and help protect against chemical carcinogens.3

In fact, writing in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers explained, “Small quantities of crucifer sprouts may protect against the risk of cancer as effectively as much larger quantities of mature vegetables of the same variety.”4 When sprouting seeds, nuts, beans and grains you get:

  • Higher phytochemical content — In many seeds, the sprouting process increases concentrations of beneficial compounds. In mung beans, for instance, sprouting significantly increased phytochemical content, vitamin C content and antioxidant activity.5 In some cases, certain compounds, such as isothiocyanates, may increase up to 570-fold after sprouting.6
  • Higher enzyme content — Sprouts contain an estimated 100 times more enzymes than fresh fruits and vegetables. These enzymes allow your body to extract higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients from other foods you eat in conjunction with the sprouts as well.
  • Increased essential fatty acid and fiber content — The essential fatty acid and fiber content also increases dramatically during the sprouting process. Most people do not get enough fiber or healthy fats in their diet for optimal health, and sprouts can be a great source of both.
  • Increased bioavailability of minerals and protein — When the seed starts to sprout, minerals such as calcium and magnesium bind to proteins in the seed, which makes both the minerals and the protein more readily available and usable in your body.
