My best food discovery lately is growing my own sprouts. The process is simple, takes only a few days for results, and the product is both great tasting and great for you. Plus a sprouted seed is about as fresh as it gets.
The very complete and informative Sprout People states that alfalfa sprouts are 35% protein and a source of vitamins A, B, C, E, K plus calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc. From nutritiondata.com it looks more like 50% protein. Pretty good for a green plant in any case, and they're low fat. The seeds of many different plants are available for sprouting with similar healthful qualities. My favorite is the "spicy mix" mix of alfalfa, clover, radish, fenugreek, which has a delicious blend of sharp and mild flavors.
