Alfalfa sprouts

Why they're super: One cup of alfalfa sprouts has less than 10 calories, is virtually fat-free, and contains phytochemicals called saponins, which may protect against cancer and help lower cholesterol.

How to enjoy them: Enjoy their fresh, earthy crunch in salads or sandwiches, or atop a lean turkey or veggie burger.

They seem so bland, but I add them now and then.

Interesting. I love reading stuff like this. I'm on a hunt for manuka honey. I have pseudomonas aergunosa and it's a bacteria that's been resistant to everything lately and this honey is supposed to fight it off.

Yum, love them on salads and in sandwiches. They are really good on a rye bread with sliced boiled egg.
