30 Bananas a Day!

The only greens that I enjoy eating from the supermarket are romain lettuce and celery, but lately the celery has had almost no taste to it (not salty at all) and the lettuce can also be very hit and miss at times plus organic greens are actually one of the most expensive things I ever buy.

 

I love the fact that home-grown sprouts are actually fresh and are dirt cheap, but are they really good for us?  (No, I'm not asking if they are as good for us as the people who claim that they are 100 times more nutritious than any other food out there, I'm just asking if they are a decent source of "greens" and if so which sprouts are best.)

 

I still have some basic sprouting trays from my first year of being "Raw" so I can easily start growing some, but I just want to know if anyone here has any advice on what's better, lettuce and celery from the supermarket or homegrown sprouts.

I enjoy lentil sprouts and sprouted quinoa.  I've sprouted chickpeas as well to make sprouted hummus but I haven't had them in a long time.

sunflower sprouts are the best option imo.

they're not as easy to grow as alfalfa tho.

its easy to eat a lb of lettuce, 1lb of sprouts, not so sure.

not sure if they're any higher in minerals than greens.

celery really isn't very high in nutrients when you compare it to romaine.

if money is the problem try cutting the celery and trying to get a deal by buying the lettuce by the case.

I remember making lentil sprouts years ago and eating them mono as a snack.  I enjoyed them quite a bit, but my taste for them might have changed a lot since then.
I've bought mung bean sprouts at the supermarket before and I enjoyed them.  I also know that it would be somewhere between 10 and 100 times cheaper to grow them myself.
