What happens if you take a super food and super charge it? My friends Ocean and John Robbins at the Food Revolution made a list of the top superfoods and leafy greens were number one. What I have been learning is that MICRO leafy greens take all that nutrition that would go into to the whole, say, broccoli plant and pack it into one tiny little package. Microgreens can have up to 40x more nutrients than their full grown counterparts. AND, drumroll please, we are now offering microgreen shares!
Here’s what Ocean says about leafy greens:
“Low in calories and rich in fiber, leafy greens are packed with carotenoids and antioxidants and full of vitamins such as vitamins A, E, and K1, as well as B vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, and magnesium. They [are also]… good for your arteries and protect your heart.
Now imagine getting all those benefits multiplied exponentially by eating them at their most highly nutritious moment! I am grateful to be able to offer these super-duper foods to our community! You can now sign up for a weekly dose of these goodies. Or if you want to just stick to the leafy greens, our greens share has you covered.
Those of you who know me well, know that I have spent a career leading non-profit organizations dedicated to access to healthy affordable food for all and what I have been learning about microgreens is getting me very excited because these greens can be grown anywhere, anytime of year, are ready in 10 days and can be grown at home. Since my boys and I have started growing, them my family has been eating A LOT of microgreens and are loving them on tacos, in salads, in smoothies, on sandwiches and more. They are super versatile and delicious. Sign up here.
