Almond sprouts are a tasty, easy-to-fix snack that are great for times around the house, and on-the-go. Keep a plastic bag of them in the fridge, if you can. For as easy as these things are to make, they are easy to eat. I bet you don't keep a bag of them for more than a day. They go quick!

Introducing almond sprouts as a tasty, nutritious snack for you and your whole family.

Almond sprouts are a wonderfully nutritious, delicious, refreshing, and unique snack. They're simple to do, and considering how much bang you get for your buck, these little trinkets may be your best bet on your snack dollar. Kids love these.

Almond sprouts give your body nutrition, your mouth a little crunch, and a feel-good sensation all over, because you know you're eating right. These are easily one of the most effective snack-time replacements for those struggling with weight loss, although the author is in no way a licensed medical professional.

What do you need to make easy delicious almond sprouts?

Almonds and water. Class over, nearly. Get the kinds of raw almonds from the fresh produce section of your local grocery store. Make sure they've not been cooked, flavored, treated or processed in any way. For this recipe to work, you must have natural, raw almonds. So far, Wal-Mart® raw almonds are fine.

How to make easy delicious nutritious almond sprouts

First, cover the nuts in a bowl of water. Keep only the kernels which do not float. Discard all floaters, after a good shake of the bowl. Those which float are bad. Work only with good, fresh raw almonds. Drain all water off with a colander. Re-soak, and strain the almonds twice more, shaking the water bowl vigorously, while straining the food-product gently.

Re-fill the bowl with almonds once more, and let them soak in the refrigerator for four to six hours. Drain once more, and store the result in a freezer bag. Do not freeze. Serve up, and remember to refrigerate any leftovers, if that's even possible. Share at parties, meal-times, and especially during a great movie or card-games.

Be prepared. Almond sprouts are surprizingly delicious to first time diners.

Being the almond is almost germinated, it begins its vegetative status again, and eaters get the benefit of all the enzymes of a newborn plant, in their diet. Energy, waste/elimination cycles, and digestive issues have cleared up in me, after three days of eating these. But I'm unable to specifically credit their consumption. I can, and will tell you, these little almond sprouts are one delicious snack. Enjoy!

These things are the tastiest little snacks you could ever get. I just had another half dozen. You eat enough of these, and you'll stop craving fast food and other unhealthy food choices. You'll gratify your brain hunger. I know. I know...big claim. but it's true.

By the way, not a thing wrong with having a picture of almonds, since you are writing about almonds.:)
