January 31 2008 day 112 - Sprouting fenugreek, and reducing insulin

I'd mentioned earlier that I love to eat sprouts. For the past few weeks, I've been sprouting fenugreek seeds along with some mung beans on the advice of my mother. I've noticed that the fenugreek sprouts improve my insulin sensitivity, thus reducing my total daily dose of insulin. Apart from having additional health benefits, I love the slightly bitter taste of the fenugreek too. Food that tastes great, and does your body good. Can't beat that.
