A few notes about this blog:
Hi and Welcome to Sprouting!
I am Sprout Lady Rita and I am the owner of the The Sprout House, located on the web at www.sprouthouse.com.
I am also the author of this blog.
I have started this blog because I felt it was a way to dialog about sprouting. I have a lot of knowledge about sprouting and I am able to use that knowledge on the website but the site is static and a blog can be more dynamic. I can post in a certain direction and then if the comments warrant another direction, then I can go that way, too. So this endeavor will be a dynamic dialog about sprouting.
Sprout Lady Rita has been sprouting since April 1986. That’s a long time ago. And I have owned The Sprout House since October 2000. Although I know a lot about sprouting, I am not an expert. I learn something new everyday from my clients that are willing to share with me their sprouting stories. I am good at what I do, but I can always get better.
I am a sprouter and I eat a lot of sprouts, but I am not a sproutarian, nor am I a raw foodist. Sprouting fits into any and all lifestyles, diets and religions. It’s just about growing and eating sprouts.
As a sprouter, I am a purist. That is, I grow sprouts and eat them without any preparation. I no longer own a juicer and I never owned a dehdyrator. I grow sprouts and then I eat them. I don’t even use a dressing, just chomp away right out of the sprouter. With two exceptions. During the warm weather season I make a cold, raw sprouted soup. During the cold weather season, I make a hot miso soup with bean sprouts when I come home from the warehouse. This soup helps me feel my toes again. Other than these two simple and easy to make soup recipes, I do nothing else to my sprouts. So this blog, will also be a way for you to share with others your favorite sprouting recipes.
Since I no longer own a juicer, I no longer grow and juice my wheatgrass. Don’t be too shocked. I have a friend that grows it for me and juices it for me, too. This system works very well for both of us.
On this blog, you will see advertisements. I am thrilled to be the owner of The Sprout House and I am very willing to share my knowledge about sprouting with anyone who asks be that over the phone, through an email or in person. But I am also a business woman, so there will be ads. I suspect that some of the ads will be for my competitors. That’s OK. There are plenty of human beings on this planet that sprout to support all of the sprouting businesses out there.
Some of the discussion of sprouting will inevitably lead to nutrition and health issues. I am not a doctor, or a nurse or any kind of health care professional. I will not diagnose or prescribe anything at all. We may discuss nutrition and some health problems, but it is purely discussion. If you do not feel well, you should consider seeing a health professional.
I hope that you will read this blog and think of it as a means to communicate with me and with other sprouters. This blog may help prove one of my theories: There really are other sprouters out there.
If I can be of any further assistance, just let me know.
Your friend in Sprouting,
Sprout Lady Rita
