Product Description

Review

"This is definitely the complete guide to the seeds and tools necessary to cultivate hundreds of pounds of food. ... A book overflowing with information. There is an integrity of good health here. And Meyerowitz writes with just the right pent-up passion to make converts of us all." -- Book Reader Magazine, July 1997

Meyerowitz is definitely the Sproutman. We never knew there were so many sprouts --- so many flavors and textures. ... The medicinal properties of these little plants, not to mention their prodigious nutrition does indeed make them a miracle food. -- Healthy Times Magazine, March 1998

This guide can make anyone a self-sufficient gardener of sprouts that are bursting with concentrated nutrition. And no one says it better than the man of greens himself--the Sproutman. -- Natural Foods Merchandiser, January 1998

This is a great book for a person who is interested in sprouting; it is very detailed and is truly full of very interesting and useful information. The book also helps to nullify a lot of the myth about toxins and hidden dangers in sprouts. The real dangers, in actuality, exist in cooked, processed, adulterated, toyed-with, sprayed, chemicalized, distorted foods (which our grocery shelves are full of). I am now 50 years old. Back in my youthful college days, I used to sprout a great deal, eating living foods exclusively. Though I stayed being a vegetarian, I got back into the cooked food craze... eating food like it was a drug for "taste" only. I work with the multiply handicapped and even though I am a teacher I have to do a lot of lifting (of adults who are not at all feather-weight). My arthritis (which runs in the family) was killing me, despite taking all kinds of natural and man made supplements. Getting back to live food was the answer I needed. Steve's book was inspirational and very helpful. I should have never deviated from what was truly the most nutritious way to eat!
There are many ways of sprouting. I happen to like the sproutpeople.com sprouters best of all. Steve's book is a priceless tool for anyone interested in sprouting... it has all kinds of neat tips and suggestions.
Also, one suggests doing a web search on Dr. Budwig's Diet... as most people are seriously deficient in essential fatty acids of the proper type. I take my oil with a little bit of live yogurt.
Anyway... I would not want Steve's book, including his Kitchen Garden book... missing from my shelves!
As Hippocrates said: "Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food."

Yes, as one person noted, the humor is sort of out of place. Bad puns throughout. I'm still giving it a 5 because it's the most helpful sprout book I've seen.
Friends of mine recommended it to me - they have an attractive set-up of baskets of sprouts growing in little seed-germinator covered plastic trays. They are thrilled with the book, and we are excited about starting to sprout. We did sprouts years ago in jars, but this system is better.
Though the book could be more condensed, it's still an easy read in a few hours. And where else is this vital information available in such thorough detail? If you are considering sprouting, you will find the information valuable.

Format: Paperback
Exactly what it says it is - a complete guide to sprouting, jam-packed with lots of information and new ideas. Steve 'Sproutman' Meyerowitz is a bit wacky but very interesting, a zealous advocate of raw food who claims he was cured of a variety of ailments after filling his New York apartment with greenery. "Sprout House" came to feed dozens of people, and Meyerowitz shares with us his findings about nutrition and indoor gardening.

This is a comprehensive guide, with a startling variety of potential sprouts, with many flavors, textures, and medicinal properties, all carefully documented. Step by step tips for growing, what kind of water to use, each sprout's level of difficulty, seed resources, nutritional and chemical compositions, and the Passion of the Sproutman all combine to make this a very useful, even definitive, book on the subject.

My own experiences have been quite simple, basic sprouting in a jar or bowl, and the results were quick and delicious. If you are at all interested in sprouting or raw food, this is a great book, recommended.
