Hi Everyone! Karmen here :) You may have seen my video on sprouting on the Karen's Holistic Health Facebook page, however, I wanted to get some sprouting tips down in writing for those of you that prefer the written word over audio! I'll also share the recipe for the rawnola I was sprouting ingredients for during that video.
Sprouting is the process in which seeds germinate and put out shoots. Now you might be saying, "Karmen, why in the world would I want to do this to my food? Doesn't that mean it's gone bad?" In reality, sprouting has immense nutrition benefits! We'll talk about those benefits below, but let's get to the basics here.

It seems that dis-ease comes in waves, and as of late – H. pylori infections are mounting. Thus, this article! Whether it came into your body through undercooked chicken, raw eggs, using someone else’s cups or utensils, kissing that special someone, eating from someone else’s plate, the counter top, or simply from food or drink you consumed that was contaminated, the spread of this infection and the treatments for it are growing daily. In fact, the Worldwide Health Organization classifies H. pylori as a carcinogen, as it has been proven to cause stomach cancer while the National Institutes of Health (NIH) states over 50% of those over the age of 60 are infected and 20% of those under the age of 40 are infected!
Helicobacter pylori, otherwise known as H. pylori, is an opportunistic bacterium. This means one can have the bacteria for weeks or years without it growing, and then when the...

Your friend on the right says they might become a Fruitarian.
You’ve seen dozens of online articles and research explaining how reducing carb intake leads to weight loss.
Yet many populations throughout the world base their diet on rice and noodles and have a very healthy BMI.

Our bodies are built to run off of carbohydrates. The mitochondria inside our cells responsible for energy production are designed with glucose as their primary fuel source. (Glucose is the unit that carbohydrates are...
