OK, this simply has to stop - Sproutarians
« on: April 12, 2010, 11:26:04 pm »
Oh yes, you thought fruitarians were taking it a step too far, but these guys are way on the other side of crazyville.

Quote
A Sproutarian is one who eats mainly sprouts. Sprouts are said to be extremely nutritious because they contain everything the plant needs to grow, that is, protein, carbohydrate and oil. When the seed germinates these turn into natural sugars and predigested amino acids which the plant then uses as food. When we eat the sprouts, we are eating the life force of the plant which has the energy capable of generating cells. It is for this reason that it is thought that sprouts can help to slow down the aging process.

Sprouts also contain female as well as male hormones and contain the highest amounts of vitamins of any food. Almost any seed can be sprouted. Broccoli sprouts is said to be extremely healthy and they don’t taste so bad either. You could try sprouting seeds at home and some popular ones to try include alfalfa, peas, fenugreek, fennel and celery seed.

Or you could try a balanced diet and plenty of exercise, like normal people.

Sources indicate there may be considerable overlap between the two groups, but I'm finding nothing so far...then again, I've been up for 25 hours now, so I'm probably doing it wrong.

If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

i can't see the site behind my works nannywall....  :sad:
what's the crazy with these folks?  sprouts are supposed to be pretty nutritious, aren't they?
i mean, i guess it's probably not the most efficient use of resources in the vein of food weight per seed, but...
do they make ridiculous claims?  (like the breatharians do?)

we need more ridiculous 'X'-arians....
hm... perhaps something blatantly corporate, like Monsontarians claiming that by eating only Monsonto branded produce one can live significantly longer.
or perhaps humanarians claiming that eating solely sloughed off skin, fingernails, and hair is beneficial (what could be more balanced for human consumption than human, after all?)

I'm still waiting for violent vegetarians to hunt meat eaters for fertilizer.
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

Sprouts are delicious on sandwiches.

However, eating mainly sprouts seems like it would clean your system out in a fairly violent fashion, on an unpleasant level.

Sometimes a good violent expulsion makes everything better. I am pretty sure than on a diet consisting mainly of sprouts, making "everything better" is not an option.

There is inadequate talk of eating babies in this thread.

SRSLY, eating sprouts wastes seeds.  Less nutrition per seed put in the ground, possibly less productivity per unit farmland.  How decadent.

Dok,
if you are ever in need of assessing your situation, i'm fairly certain that i could evaluate your colon pressure based on nothing more than your current posting activity...
