grow your own healthy sprouted seeds to eat at home for a wellness event idea

Are you looking for a way to grow healthy food at home?

- How about quickly, like 7 days time.

- What if the plant was super nutritious?!

- Plus you don’t have to touch any dirt.


There’s so many reasons why growing Sprouts at home is an exceptional idea.

- Do this with the kids

- Save money by growing your own $$


We’ll show you our own 1 week batch from seeds to sprouts and explain the easy steps below.


Here’s what you’ll need:

sprout seed packages to begin growing at home

- A Mason Jar

- A special Mason Jar Lid or cover for the top

- A Package of Sprout Seeds

- Filtered Water

Let’s start with those special mason jar lids.

I prefer the premade screen tops here for ease. 

2 lids, $9 Sprouting Lids

However, you can also make your own at home with some mesh wire and a rubber band, zip-tie or metal circular clamp.


Then the seed mix.

If we’re going for the healthiest option…the Antioxidant Mix from Food to Live is my top choice.

- It’s organic

- Made of Broccoli, Clover and Alfalfa seeds

- This $21 bag has lasted me 1 year Sprout Seed Mix

Otherwise there are lots of great options available.


Ok our process, day-by-day.

Day 1:

- Put 1 tablespoon of seed mix into the mason jar.

- Put the lid on.

- Pour filtered water about halfway full.

- Place the jar in a cool, dark location for the next 12 - 16 hrs.

Day 2: 

- Dump the water and flush once with filtered water.

- Empty all water out of the jar.

- Roll the jar around a bit, sticking seeds to its side.

- Replace jar in cool, dark location for 24 hrs.

- Keep the jar lid-side facing down now.

- Now store in a cool area but with a little more sunlight exposure.

*Green arrives!

Day 5:

- Flush and reset in cool, brighter area.

- It’s worth noting in warmer times of the year, sprouts can be done growing in 5 days time.

- During colder parts of the year, it may be 7 - 8 days before sprouts are ready for harvesting.

- Continue to repeat day 4 until sprouts appear full grown.

Now it’s time to harvest and refrigerate them! 

- Get a strainer and put your sprouts in and wash away remaining unsprouted seeds.  (It’s common to have a bunch left… this is just extra health.)


- Then grab a tupperware container and add a single paper towel sheet to the bottom.

- Place sprouts on top of the paper towel and refrigerate.

Sprouts are best eaten raw, nutritionally speaking.  They are a great addition to salads and sandwiches.  


*IMPORTANT NOTE*:  Sprouts can go bad quick.  

They start to smell bad when they do plus get real soft and mushy.  

Throw them out when they’ve gone bad.
