One of the survivalist guys recommended sprouts as nutritious and very easy to produce. It's like a three day cycle you keep going, always starting a batch and harvesting after three days. He recommended red wheat, as I recall. It's cheap to buy a fifty pound sack of wheat and will feed one for a long time.

Here's a source, although a local feed store might be cheaper. From my farming experience, I remember alfalfa seed being very high priced, like $30 a pound. That's been years ago though.
