The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Spartans, there are many challenges in this world that don’t have a clear solution, this one does! The importance of food security and good nutrition has never been more obvious than in the last few months. Local access to healthy food can come from a lack of land access or resources. Sprouting seeds solves all of these problems! Seeds are inexpensive and with a simple jar and some water, wherever you live, in less than 4 days you can sprout some of the highest density, bioavailable nutrients there are! Everything that you put into your body is a choice. Raise your standards around what you eat and you will perform at a higher level than you have known. The seeds want to come alive and so do you! It’s time to Sproutin’ Up Sproutans!

Doug Evans tells Joe De Sena how took responsibility for his own life, how he got off the fat, sugar, salt addiction, and finally how he became a guru of sprouting and how you can bring this powerful nutrition into your own life!

Sprouting is easy!
Sprouts are the ultimate “superfood”
Sprouting is affordable + accessible
Sprouting increases nutrient bioavailability
Eat local, nutritionally dense food
Seeds want to come alive
Eat sprouts daily
What you put into your body is a choice
