10 Foods that Regrow in Water Alone without Dirt

(1) It’s absolutely free.

You already bought the vegetable. All it costs is a few tablespoons of water… but if you’re smart about it, you can re-use water you’ve already used for boiling pasta or while you were waiting for the shower to get hot.

(2) It’ll trim your grocery budget.

Granted, you won’t get a huge harvest out of any of these items, but it’s still food and every little bit helps. Even if it’s a few leaves of lettuce to scoop your tuna salad with, it’s food you didn’t have to buy!


(3) It makes organics more affordable.

If you start with organic food, you’ll grow organic… so you’ll reap the benefits of organic greens without actually paying for them!

(4) It’s easy.

Do I have to explain further? I mean, stick the plant in water and watch it grow. Really – it’s that easy!
