Did you know that a tablespoon of microgreens is a full serving of vegetables?
In 2012 nutrition researchers at the University of Maryland concluded that microgreens are the most nutrient-dense stage of a plant's development. All of the leafy collards, kale, and broccoli that has held the nutritional spotlight for years is being replaced by their younger brothers and sisters!
Microgreens are an easy way to get the living nutrition your body craves, and to get kids excited about eating their veggies! We have been surprised at how well young children receive our products, and you will be too.
Here are some easy ways to eat microgreens daily:
Substitute microgreens for lettuce on sandwiches
Add to dips, such as micro cilantro on a Mexican layered dip
Use as a beautiful garnish on pastas, stir-fries, and other entrees
Blend into smoothies with fruits, veggies, and nuts
Eat them as a super food salad! Just drizzle on a homemade olive oil vinaigrette
