Unleash this superfood in your weekly diet
4-40 times more nutrients than fully grown vegetables
Microgreens are baby vegetables, usually harvested about 6-14 days after sowing the seed. This is the optimal time for concentrated nutritional benefits and taste. This is before the true leaves of the vegetable, which would traditionally not be eaten, begin to grow and in turn reduce the nutritional benefits
Eating microgreens has a variety of health benefits. They are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which can help to boost the immune system and protect against disease. Microgreens have also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to reduce the risk of chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
In addition to their nutritional value, microgreens are also versatile and can be easily incorporated into a variety of dishes. They can be used as a garnish, added to salads and sandwiches, or used as a topping for soups and other dishes.
Overall, microgreens are a delicious and nutritious addition to any diet and can provide a range of health benefits. So, try adding them to your meals today and enjoy all the benefits that microgreens have to offer!
