Growing your own microgreens comes with many benefits:
-Know whats in your food- No GMO’s or pesticides. By growing your own, you are saving yourself and your family from ingesting countless toxins.
-Some of the most nutrient dense greens on the market- “According Researchers with the University of Maryland College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR) and the United States Department of Agriculture, microgreens contained 4 to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts.”
-No green thumb required- Microgreens only take 7-10 days to grow. You are able to grow them year round,as they are an indoor plant.
-Delicious- Microgreens were originally popularized by chefs for their flavor and ability to make any dish special. They also hide well in smoothies! This makes for, not only a healthy smoothie, but a tasty smoothie as well.
-Become more sustainable- Growing your own microgreens is the epitome of the farm to table concept. Your farm can be on your table! “According to the recent book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, if everybody in America ate just one meal of local and organic food per week, we would cut the nation’s oil consumption by 1.1 million barrels a week!”
