For those meat lovers...don´t feel guilty eating meat...first of all, we need meat and other animal products as they are the only  source for vit.B12...a very important vitamin for the body, it is together with vit.B6 an essential vitamin in charge of a good metabolism, red cell production and for the nervous system...deficencies in these can cause many severe problems such as neurological problems (depression, difficult walking, etc) so make sure you take your vit.B every day! thing must be said...meat is best eaten raw, the reason for this is that when cooked, it creates cancerigenous molecules and therefor are dangerous when eaten in great amounts.I can understand people have some issues with raw meat, if this is your case you can marinate your meat in lemon juice or slightly cook it ,just make sure the heating temperature does not rise up to 100 degrees as it seems that these molecules will be present at these high temperatures.
Another important thing is to make sure you know from where that meat comes from..make sure it´s organic meat...where animals were treated well before they were put down..not only in behalve of the animal´s wellbeing but also for you.When animals suffer, stress hormones are released into the blood and this passed on to you..


Lentils are packed with great nutrients and when sprouted it´s even better as all these nutrients are at it´s most concentrated and best form...not only is it a great protein source but also has vitamins like A, B, C and E...folates make the iron production more efficient...when lentils are combined with vit.C (lemon juice) it increases the Iron absortion in the body.
Lentil sprouts are also a great glucemiccarbohidrate as it does not higher the glucemic curve so it could be called the "good carbohidrate".
About the protein concentration, it is also of great quality,  although it lacks one of the essential aminoacid, Methionine which is present in animal meat or eggs, so we could combine lentils with some meat or eggs to hace the complete protein balance!
Making sprouts is very easy...just make sure lentils are organic , leave them out and make sure they are always humid by rinsing them with fresh water a few days you will see the sprouts coming out!It´s great fun to see these tiny plants growing!! Enjoy!
