Microgreens the Living Vitamin

Think of  a microgreen as a living vitamin!

Here are microgreens explained in a nutshell a quick medicinal look

Im proud to suggest my slightly sarcastic/fun look at micros in my post MICROGREEN ARONOMY OF INDOOR GARDENING

A microgreen is a super food,  6 to 60 times more nutrient dense than any other piece of fresh produce on the market.   Each kind of microgreen carries a unique set of nutrients  and so its best to include a variety of microgreens as much as possible for optimal health. Microgreens help repair, strengthen and detox organs and blood vessels.

    • Microgreens  burst with flavor and texture:  mild to piquant,  crunchy to soft and buttery and everything in between. Help you cut down on dressing, and stick with a low calorie diet!
    • Low calorie food
    • Look fantastic as garnish or side dish (check out COLORFUL MICROGREENS FOR CREATIVE CHEFS)
  • living vitamin

A microgreen can be virtually any plant that you commonly eat,  a vegetable,  a grain or an herb, except that it is a seedling stage, harvested at 2-3 weeks  after planting.  It  has the same nutrient profile as its mature counterpart, but a lot more concentrated. Baby greens, microgreens, or  sprouts? Learn the difference here!
