We are going to let you in on a little secret because, this can't be kept any longer and we want the word out! As our soil becomes more and more depleted of nutrients causing our food to become less nutritious, we are being told we need to eat more and more veggies. It is now recommended that we eat 5-13 servings of vegetables per day. Even for the healthy eaters, this is not an easy task. Well, we have an answer to this and it has been around forever, known for decades and can't be kept a secret any longer!
"Microgreens" is the name for the age of the vegetable. Most vegetable varieties are at their nutrient density height between 8 and 10 days of life. This is the age of most Microgreens. So, MICROGREENS contain 4 to 40 TIMES MORE NUTRIENTS than the mature vegetable!!! And a few of the studies to prove it are below or on the web.
So there's the secret and they are super easy to consume. You can put them in smoothies, on tacos, burgers, sandwiches, salads, mix them in soup, pasta, or rice dishes, put them on top of eggs or avocado toast, anything and everything! Not only are they super nutritious, they also taste like their adult vegetable version at this age. So, adding Microgreens to your daily routine not only adds a Nutrient Dense punch to your diet but, you also get the amazing flavors each one packs!
