I'm not sure I've put this question in the right section of the forum ... I would like to know more about bean sprouts.
I decided to get a pack of dried beans and grow my own at home. I'm sure I would end up chucking away loads if I got one of those big supermarket bags!
I followed these instructions and grew some in a jar.

They have come out really teeny compared to the supermarket ones - do they look done yet? They arms and legs don't seem to be getting bigger and they are starting to get leaf sprouts in addition to root sprouts - yet the bean body still remains quite large and firm.
How many calories would you count them as? Taking the example of mung beans calorie king website cites
100g raw mung beans = 347 cals
100g sprouted mung beans = 30 cals
This obviously makes a big difference to whether I should have them on a fast day.
I would appreciate any advice or suggestions for future reference (I have already weighed and measured my Monday rations )
Thanks - Amethyst
