TO EAT HEALTHIER, YOU DON'T NEED TO CHANGE MUCH, JUST ADD A LITTLE

MICROGREENS

Have you ever tried these gorgeous little things?

Microgreens are larger than sprouts but smaller than baby salad greens. These young vegetable greens are approximately 2-5 inches tall and harvested 7-14 days after sprouting, once the plant’s true leaves have emerged. Their taste varies depending on the variety, ranging from neutral to spicy, slightly sour and even bitter.

In general, microgreens have a significantly higher nutritional density than their mature counterparts. Therefore, they are superb for our well-being. Microgreens help to reduce body weight, lower the blood pressure, maintain the blood sugar level and are anti-ageing as well as anti-cancer.

How to use microgreens to gain their benefits?

 

Microgreens are intensely flavourful, beautiful in colour and have a delicate crunchy texture. This is the most nutritional food on the planet, and it may be eaten daily by vegans, vegetarians and professed meat-eaters. It does not matter whether you are a fan of the Italian, Mexican, Indian or French cuisine. You can add them to any dish of your choice; use them as a filling in a sandwich, sprinkle them on soup, salad, pizza, curry or pasta, blend them into smoothies or just use as a garnish. Microgreens can also be useful to introduce essential nutrients to poor eaters on a daily basis.
