Alfalfa sprouts   2 comments

When I was a little girl, I was friends with two sisters who were vegetarians.  At the time, I couldn’t comprehend the thought of not eating meat.  That meant no hot dogs, no pepperoni pizza, no Bologna!  What would life be like, I wondered.  Why would anyone want to do that?

I remember one day my friends came over to play and they had their lunch with them, which was peanut butter and Alfalfa Sprouts.  I was very confused.  “What the heck is an Alfalfa Sprout?” I said to myself.  My friend let me taste a piece and I actually liked it.  I really liked it!   I had a new love, Alfalfa sprouts!  I asked my mom to buy some, but she frowned saying she wasn’t going to waste money on that.  So there went the end of my new love.

But eventually I became an adult as well as a vegetarian and saw them at a salad bar.  Alfalfa Sprouts!  I cheered out loud.  Yes I know, child like behavior.  But It was Alfalfa and we go way back.  So I was able to enjoy them again until they raised the price of the salad bar.  At the time having money to party was more important to me.  So out went that old flame again.

But don’t fret people.  I found them again today!  I also decided to jazz them up a bit.  So I put a special sauce on them and made a sandwich.  Fabulous!

Alfalfa is officially back in my life!

Oh yeah, Alfalfa contains vitamins A, B, C, E and K.  If it is harvested right it can even produce chlorophyll.  Don’t even get me started about the benefits of chlorophyll.
