Make July 23rd National Sprout Day!
July 23rd is Steve “the Sproutman” Meyerowitz’s birthday. Although he is sadly no longer with us, he spent 40+ years of his life educating people about the incredible benefits of eating and growing sprouts—while also spreading a message of positivity, kindness, and love. To honor and continue his decades of trailblazing work, we want to make July 23rd National Sprout Day.
Sprouts are one of the most powerful greens on the planet. As baby greens in their first two weeks of life, they are naturally chock full of easy-to-absorb vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, amino acids, and special plant compounds (like sulforaphane). Gram for gram, sprouts can have up to 40x more nutrients than their full grown veggie counterparts. In short, they are nature’s most delicious and powerful multivitamin—but they also support social and environmental sustainability by providing an accessible food source for all.
National Sprout Day is a day to eat sprouts, start sprouting at home, and educate others about the countless benefits of these supergreens. It’s also a gentle reminder to be sproutful—to be a force of kindness, hope, positivity, generosity, and love in the world.We hope you’ll help us make National Sprout Day official by signing the petition! In the meantime, stay sproutful!
