Ian Giesbrecht is a farmer, food activist, and lover of Mother Earth. Originally from Canada, he has traveled widely, gleaning food wisdom from many different cultures. He now makes his home in Taos, New Mexico, where he sells microgreens and volunteers at the local food co-op.
"Sprouts: Live Well with Living Foods is a helpful, well-researched, guidebook for those looking to not only dive into the world of sprouting and microgreens, but also have an understanding of the impact of their food. Giesbrecht reminds us that in order to eat well, both for ourselves and the world around us, we have to start thinking small. Because from the smallest seed, life can grow, and from the smallest change in our everyday actions, we can have a wider impact." --Anna Brones, author of The Culinary Cyclist and Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break
"Beware of reading this book: It may fundamentally change your
diet as you know it! Through well presented nutritional facts,
science, images and mouthwatering recipes you'll gain an
understanding of the values of the simple things in life such as
seeds...and how to eat them! Ian is a walking encyclopedia and an
inspiring educator." --Max Vittrup Jensen, PermaLot Center of
