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.

I love sprouts but for awhile there seemed to be so many recalls my husband told me to stop buying them.

I need to start sprouting my own for when I'm planning to eat them.

Yeah the recalls have really kept me from them too!
