Are you including sprouted foods in your diet? Live sprouts are one of the most magical health-promoting foods on offer. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and complete proteins, sprouts are not only raw foods, they're live foods that transfer their alkaline life energy into our bodies. But, they don't always taste so great.
The Sprout Living Sproutein powder is a great superfood supplement, and offers a much more palatable way to include sprouts in your diet. This powder is raw, vegan, gluten free, organic, non GMO, nutrient-dense, and alkalizing. With a potent combo of freeze-dried chia, yellow pea, kale, millet, mung bean, quinoa, sunflower and amaranth sprouts; and exotic blendf of goji berries, maca root, lucuma and baobab; and 10 grams of protein per serving, this protein powder is a pretty perfect food.
As much as I love to sprout nuts, seeds, legumes, and grains and do include them in salads and other dishes, they don't taste too fabulous in smoothies. This sprout powder offers a convenient and tasty way to get your fix in a smoothie. I've sweetened this limeade blend with apple juice and mango. It's zesty, sweet, and oh, so tasty. You'd never know there was sprouts in it.

*Probiotic Powder - I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.
*Celtic Sea Salt - I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
