While broccoli sprouts may look pretty boring, I can assure you that they are anything but!
Don’t underestimate a sprout by its size, broccoli sprouts are incredibly powerful in preventing cancer. In fact, they are more dominant in cancer prevention than mature broccoli.
Their small size has both a mightier nutrient benefit and allows them to be one of the most versatile ingredients around. Broccoli sprouts should be incorporated into just about any recipe you whip up to maximize cancer phyto-power. Try them in green salads, quinoa, noodle dishes, stir fries, and smoothies.
For a twist on a sprout sandwich try a filling broccoli sprout and guacamole wrap. It makes for a great grab and go option with all components of a healthy, balanced meal
Broccoli Sprout and Guacamole Wrap
1 brown rice tortilla (I prefer Sprouted for Life)
1 avocado, pitted and diced (or substitute with hummus, if preferred)
2-3 green onions, chopped
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1/2 lemon, juiced

1 T fresh chives, chopped
1/2 cup red or green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup broccoli sprouts
1/4 cup fresh spinach leaves

Herbamare seasoning blend
In a small bowl, mash the avocado (or hummus) with the green onion. Add celery, lemon juice, herbamare seasoning and stir. Sprinkle with cilantro and chives.
Spread guacamole (or hummus) on tortilla, add remaining ingredients and sprinkle with hemp seeds. Fold and enjoy cold.
