Why I Love Sprouts?
My love for sprouts started more than 40 years ago, when I became a vegetarian as a teenager, a lifelong competitive athlete participating in high school team sports and moving onto individual sports as an adult. From becoming a professional runner & triathlete blessed to represent the United States on Team USA at the World Duathlon Long Distance Championships to competing in 35 marathons; including 4 Boston Marathons and a Miami Marathon 1st place finish, the Ironman Triathlon and hundreds of races worldwide.
I’ve learned that my performance and longevity in sports is dependent on fueling my body with a plant-based diet rich in protein, vitamins and minerals and that’s where sprouts take the center stage.
Why Sprouts Rock!
Sprouts are one of the most nutritious vegetable sources of protein, antioxidants like vitamins C and E, minerals like magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc and the electrolyte potassium. Which are all critical for fortifying the body to combat the stress of exercise, environment and everyday life.
Sprouts are also a great source of fiber, the carbohydrate that helps to keep our gut fit & running each day. The more variety in the diet, the better opportunity there is to get the freshest source of even more of the compounds you find in veggies per serving, help the microflora of your gut to flourish with rich healthy bacteria and build your body in ways that you will experience for yourself whether you play sports or play with your kids.
Fullei Fresh offers more than 20 varieties of sprouts and concentrated powders which can accent even your favorite dishes, plant based or not, with valuable nutrients you just can’t live without!
