We love microgreens! We’re all about them! We have them at every meal and tend to snack on them inbetween meals. But it’s not just us! Lots of people love microgreens and for good reason too!
Microgreens are tiny plants, packed with nutrients, flavor, and much more. We take regular old vegetable or herb seed (organic when possible and always non-gmo), plant them in organic potting soil and grow them for a couple of weeks. When harvested at this point, the greens are a little extra special. Here are some of the top benefits of eating microgreens:
- Rich in nutrients: Microgreens are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They contain up to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts, making them a great way to boost your daily intake of essential vitamins and minerals.
- Promote healthy digestion: Microgreens contain high levels of fiber, which is essential for healthy digestion.
- Boosts immune system: Microgreens are packed with immune-boosting nutrients like vitamin C and vitamin E, which can help to strengthen your immune system and fight off infections.
- Improve heart health: Microgreens are a great source of potassium, which can help to lower blood pressure and improve heart health. They are also rich in folate, which is essential for a healthy heart.
- Enhance mental clarity: Microgreens are a good source of vitamins and minerals that can help to enhance brain function and improve mental clarity. They are also rich in antioxidants, which can help to protect your brain from oxidative stress.
Microgreens are more than just a pretty leaf. They are a nutritious and delicious addition to any diet. Their health benefits are numerous and their flavors are abundant. Adding microgreens into your daily meals is a great way to boost your nutrition without sacrificing on flavor!
