A fresh new way to

GET YOUR GREENS

MICROGREENS
Get a lot from a lil'

Back in the 80's,  microgreens were introduced to the restaurant scene but have since become popular with health-conscious people. They are considered a baby vegetable plant and are harvested 7-20 days after the first leaves appear (not to be confused with ‘sprouts,’ which have a shorter growing cycle).

 

Microgreens can be grown from many types of seeds. They have intense aromatic flavours and a variety of colours and textures. Rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, chlorophyll and fibre, they pack a higher nutritional punch than mature vegetables.

 

Eat microgreen stems and leaves raw, added to salads, wraps, burgers, blended into smoothies, juiced or used as a garnish. 

 

For optimal health benefits, eat microgreens everyday!
