    Default Sprouts

    I've never seen this mentioned, but I have found deli sprouts have been increasing my milk supply. They contain sprouted fenugreek along with other grains. I only ate them once and the next day I reeked of maple syrup. I've been eating them once-twice a day and its been great. I put it on a sandwich for lunch and then on a salad at dinner. Delicious!

    Makes sense, since fenugreek seeds work and sprouted seeds generally raise their nutrient value. I wish I'd tried that when I was using fenugreek - I love sprouts!

    Yeah, I had mentioned this in an Iron Chef thread a while back...I sprout my own fenugreek seeds. Did it by accident the first time. I love them. They smell so good. I still have a ton of fenugreek seeds too....so it looks like I will be having sprouts for forever!

    hmmm cool. I think my grocery store has sprouts in the produce dept. But they probably have a low turnover and never look good. Is there a certain blend that contains fenugreek? I think mine are just alfalalfa or something.

    Where would I get fenugreek seeds?

    I got mine at a local market that is like a WF but smaller. They were 3.49 per pound. And I bought a pound. So if you can imagine...I have a TON left!

    You can also get them at ethnic markets - they are used a lot in Indian cooking.
