National Sprout Day is all about sprouts–one of the most powerfully nutritious, accessible, and sustainable foods on the planet. It is a day to eat sprouts, grow sprouts, and spread the word about these incredible little superfoods!


Why Celebrate Sprouts? 🌱🌱🌱

Sprouts are one of the most powerful greens on the planet. They are baby vegetables (less than 2 weeks old)—which means they are especially rich in easy-to-digest nutrients. Gram for gram, sprouts have up to 40x more nutrients than their full grown veggie counterparts.

These tiny but mighty superfoods also contain powerful plant compounds that have been widely researched to help prevent chronic disease—like sulforaphane from broccoli sprouts.

Homegrown sprouts are also the perfect food for fighting social justice issues like food insecurity and are one of the most environmentally sustainable greens on the planet.

Sprouts are the affordable, accessible, and sustainable clean food for all!

How You Can Celebrate

☝🏽 Spread the word about sprouts.

Sprouts don’t have their own PR team, so we have to do it for them! Tell someone you love about the nutritional and sustainability benefits of eating and growing lots of sprouts.

✌🏻 Eat lots of sprouts (and grow your own).

Toss yourself a big sprout salad, or add your favorite sprouts to sandwiches, wraps, stir fries, omelets, toasts—everything! And if you haven’t tried growing your own, now’s the time!

🤟🏿 Be like a sprout!

Bring more good into the world. Keep growing, and sowing positivity and love.
