What are Microgreens?
So glad you asked!
Microgreens are adolescent versions of your favorite veggies, herbs, and greens, not to be confused with sprouts. Microgreens are typically harvested 10-14 days after germination; they are incredibly flavorful and packed with nutrients. New studies have suggested that microgreens are 4 to 40 times more nutrient-dense than their adult counterparts!

How do I eat Microgreens?
If you're looking for a quick snack or want to add some flavor to your favorite dish, microgreens are a great option! One of our favorite ways to eat them is by blending them in our morning smoothie with assorted fruits and yogurt, adding a handful to our salads, and topping off burgers and sandwiches for an extra kick of flavor.
