My girls and I have been growing our own sprouts (it is really easy) for food and a science experiment. We have only done broccoli sprouts so far. Broccoli sprouts contain 50 times the nutrition of broccoli, and they are easy to eat raw. My oldest daughter LOVES them, partly because she grew them, which is fantastic because she won't eat broccoli. I was wondering if sprouts would be a way to get raw nutrition from plants when someone has OAS problems with the ending result vegetable? It's just the small sprouted seed of a plant that would eventually grow (for example) broccoli...but it contains all the nutrition of the ending result vegetable without cross-pollination issues, but in a small compact form. I'm not sure if the seed alone would grow a plant with cross contamination from plants from when the seed originally grew...but I thought someone with OAS who is unable to eat raw veggies might be interested in looking into it further.
