l can drink a few glasses of green smoothies made from sprout juices or even drink a really large glass of weed juice (dandelion) and have no problems. But when l consume sprouted quinoa (3 - 4 tablespoons that has been sprouted) l feel really green and unwell and lose appetite for the rest of the day. l've been feeling green gilled for about 6 hours so far (same as last time). Anyone else get this strong cleansing reaction?
l don't have this problem with other grains like wheat, barley or oats (haven't tried sprouted millet as yet, but will give it a go in a few days).
lf it's putting me off my food maybe l should try eating alot less of it.
Same with me, and many others.
I well never eat sprouted quinoa again.
That stuff is just NOT food for human beings. I think anyone who purports to enjoy sprouted quinoa is not "listening" to their body.
I was just about to sprout some quinoa (as I love cooked quinoa). Now I am scared! :bolt
Personally I've never had that reaction. I do fine with it.
I have never greened it but just soaked and barely sprouted is fine for me. Try walnutty. It's very nice and a good alternative to cracked wheat and cous cous.
I think it's the saponins.

YOU MUST RINSE VERY WELL!
p.s. I don't do sprouted wheat...I have, but it made me really sick. And cous cous is just white flour pasta, isn't it?
Sprout for a short time. Rinse madly. Pat dry. Add dressing, herbs, veggies etc.
