Why Microgreens?

and how are they eaten?

Microgreens are the true Superfood and a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry show these little greens are 4-40 times more nutrient-density than that of their fully-grown vegetable counterparts. This means that even an ounce of microgreens can be equivalent to eating a large salad full of veggies. Imagine how much easier it would be to nourish your family with adequate vegetable intake when all they have to eat is the crunchy garnish placed on their tacos or sandwiches

 

Not only are they healthy, but they also taste great! Many microgreens share the flavor profile of the vegetables, but with more intensity. Want to spice up a dish? Add some radish, garlic or chive Microgreens to the mix and experience the extra zest!

Microgreens are packed with concentrated nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Living foods are among the healthiest foods on the planet. Microgreens are simply young seedlings that are utilized at their most nutritious and delicious state. They are also easier to chew and digest.

Studies have shown microgreens may help reduce heart disease risk factors, such as weight, bad LDI, cholesterol & triglycerides.

Microgreens contain wider variety of polyphenols than their mature vegetable counterparts which help prevent the buildup of harmful free radicals associated with a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Green consumption is associated with the lower risk of certain cancers, inflammation, heart disease, diabetes & obesity.
