Sprouted Mung Bean Salad

I absolutely love the vibrant colours, the taste and the health benefits that this salad has to offer. Sprouted foods such as raw seeds, beans, nuts, and grains are live whole foods that pack quite the nutritional punch; a must when eating right.  Sprouted mung beans are very digestible, high in fibre, B-vitamins, a great source of protein and loaded with vitamin C, K, folate and iron. This is salad guaranteed to fill you up and give you that much needed energy so that you can take on the rest of your day.
