these are from my window sill
They take about 10 seconds a day to maintain (pouring a little water onto paper towel) and cause me to smile big time. Being near growing things (AKA life) makes me all warm and fuzzy. No matter how much land you own, space you have, sun is out, sprouting is available to you. You can give life and surround yourself with life!
So sprouting is super simple. You can find a million directions in a million different places. So let’s create the million and first!
.get some seeds (above are mustard seeds that I got from the bulk section of my local food co-op)
.line a bowl with damp paper towel
.put soaked seeds into bowl
.put bowl in sunny spot
.keep paper towel damp and let your sprouts grow!
Want more sprouting info?? I love the [sprout people]. They are awesome.
I’ve been pretty distant from this lovely space lately. But I have been experiencing so much and feeling so much. Sometimes It is difficult to share all that happens because it just doesn’t do them justice! But I have the intention of being more present here. I am not sure for what purpose other than just to share the little things that make me feel joy, feel life.
a bunch of fresh basil
a handful of nutritional yeast
4 large cloves of garlic
juice from 3 lemons
a couple pinches of salt
served on a bed of lettuce to satisfy 2 salad fanatics.
topped with day lilies stolen from my commencement ceremony.
post commencement reception for graduating from the University of Michigan ❤
to which I may or may not have brought my yoga mat.
(a special thanks to lots of nori, nutritional yeast, and lots of dried basil)
I have yet to master the art of taking pictures of salads (the pictures tend to be a mess of green, failing to illustrate their drool-inducing essence), which is quite unfortunate because I make one hell of a salad, if I do say so myself. Luckily I have plenty of opportunities to practice as I eat a enormous salad everyday for dinner!
I made an unexpectedly delicious salad for dinner this evening and felt the need to spread the love so here it is:
what goes in…
a few handfuls of greens (butter lettuce and arugula for me)
2 avocados, cubed
3 sheets of toasted nori, crumbled up
2 heaping spoonfuls of nutritional yeast
juice of 1 lemon
2 large cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons of dried basil
a pinch of cayenne
half a dropperful of liquid stevia
(I ate this entire amount all on my own for dinner
– with roasted sweet potato, parsnips, and burdock on the side –
however this may be a little much for “the average person”
– whatever that means haha)
