Doug Evans – Sprouting for Optimal Health

Today’s interview is all about sprouts!

Sprouting makes nuts, seeds, and legumes come alive with enzymes and exponentially more nutritional content. This is why sprouts were a key ingredient in my anticancer diet. I ate them twice a day every day on my Giant Cancer-Fighting Salad. My go-to sprouts are broccoli seeds, mung beans, lentils, and garbanzo beans.
As a sprout lover, I thought it would be fun to interview Doug Evans, author of The Sprout Book.
Doug is a pioneer in the natural food industry. In 2002 he co-founded Organic Avenue, one of the first exclusively raw, organic, plant-based retail chains in the country.
Doug wrote The Sprout Book to teach people about the incredible power of sprouts. Sprouting is the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way to grow your own food and Doug’s mission is to help you get excited about growing and eating the most nutrient-dense food on the planet, sprouts!
I know you will enjoy this interview.
