Comments & Reviews


"I wish Sprouts was out years ago...Ian gets into the science of sprouting, what you can sprout and the method, what to be aware may be small, but it’s resourceful."


"Sprouts: Live Well with Living Foods is a helpful, well-researched, guidebook for those looking to not only dive into the world of sprouting and microgreens, but also have an understanding of the impact of their food. Giesbrecht reminds us that in order to eat well, both for ourselves and the world around us, we have to start thinking small. Because from the smallest seed, life can grow, and from the smallest change in our everyday actions, we can have a wider impact."
