Doctors today are telling us to eat less meat and dairy. What other ways can we get our protein? We can’t eat fish all the time.
Beans and grains are a time-honored way to get plenty of protein with low fat, high fiber and no cholesterol. Sprouts: Alfalfa, Mung Bean, and Bean Mix, are beans that have been sprouted and are a wonderful option for a variety of vegetarian meals.
Grown locally year round, sprouts are a good source of protein and vitamin C. 3 ounces of Mung Beansprouts contain 30 calories. A 12-ounce bag served as a side dish or salad is enough for 4 to 6 people. See below to view our sprout nutrition chart which compares alfalfa, mung bean, radish, soybean and wheat sprouts.
