There could be many reasons why one might want to try making almond milk or other nut milks at home: 1. Chronic eczema (skin issues) or seasonal allergies that need to be cleared up in the family. Cow’s milk is known to trigger/ aggravate those. 2. After eliminating gluten from diet, one may feel that

Moong beans are one of the easier beans to digest and are loaded with micro-nutrients.  Sprouting makes the B-vitamins in it more available and also increase he soluble fiber content. It is also the easiest bean to sprout. Any method would work well- muslin cloth, a covered colander or a seed sprouter. A tip: A

  A delicious, protein-rich snack in the form of patties or cutlets made with sprouted beans. I had some leftover black-eye bean sprouts that I had made sundal with, last week. We were tired of eating varieties of sundal for the Navaratri festival, and our taste buds were begging for some other form of snack.

Dosas are versatile in that many combinations work well. This time, I tried a combination of sprouted whole grain bajra or pearl millet along with urad dal (black gram dal). I got this inspiration from my mother who recalled reading about this in a women’s magazine in India. I used a non stick orgreenic pan

Another way to use sprouted chickpeas if you have them in your refrigerator, like I did, a few days ago! We are big fans of Trader Joe’s masala burgers in my house and try to get as many boxes as would fit in the freezer when we visit the store  (50 miles away). I have

This is by far the best combination I have had in a salad- beans with a green dressing containing ginger. The beans add protein and substance to the salad and ginger counteracts any of the gas produced by the beans. My awesome sister-in-law gave me the idea for this dressing. I used kidney beans and
