Flavour-FULL and packed with nutrients; grow your own micro-greens!
Micro-greens have been popular in fancy restaurants since the '80s, and if you were lucky, you could find them in specialty grocery stores (at $30 a tray!) but it is possible to grow them at home.
A micro-green is essentially a seedling of edible vegetables and herbs. These tiny greens are packed full of vitamins C, E, K, lutein and beta-carotene. They are also FULL of flavour! Whether you throw a few micro-greens in a salad, a smoothie, in your sandwich or in a wrap, it's easy to work micro-greens into your diet.
Micro-greens can be grown in your home or apartment (or even a tiny house!) as long as you have access to water and sunlight. By growing them indoors you have complete control over their care; no pesticides or environmental factors will be an issue and, in just 10 to 14 days you will be feasting on your crop.
