Sunflower “Sunflower sprouts are very hearty and can be used as a lettuce replacement in most salads,” says Halverson. Or, use them to spruce up a vegetable stir fry. These crisp greens have a slightly nutty taste and are loaded with antioxidants, chlorophyll, amino acids and vitamin D, which is great for strong bones and muscles. Sunflower sprouts are also good for your noggin — their large amounts of digestive enzymes promote the assimilation of key nutrients necessary for brain health.
Broccoli Rich in antioxidants as well as vitamins A, B and C, broccoli sprouts also have high concentrations of sulforaphane, a cancer-preventing phytochemical. “Broccoli sprouts really do offer comprehensive nourishment,” says Snyder, who suggests adding this green superfood to salads and wraps.
