Yoga Journal recently published a great article about sprouting your own grains, beans, and nuts at home—that ultimate science-project-meets-health food endeavor.

I also learned, from following links in the story, that sprout supply manufacturer, Sproutpeople, recommends playing music for your sprouts. Specifically the Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, and Stevie Wonder.
