      I enjoy alfalfa sprouts on sandwiches when I eat out at a local health food deli but I haven't used them at home. Your article has spurred me to try it.

      Although, like many people here, I'm not fan of filling my sandwiches - too many calories, bad for cholesterol, waistline and heart - I like alfalfa in my sandwiches and even in salads!
