Microgreens punch well above their weight when it comes to nutritional value.
In a recent study, Researchers found microgreens like red cabbage, cilantro, and radish contain up to 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients than their mature counterparts.
Microgreens are young seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs harvested less than 14 days after germination. They are usually about 1-3 inches long and come in a rainbow of colors, which has made them popular in recent years as garnishes with chefs.
Although nutritional claims about microgreens abound on the Internet, this study is the first scientific evaluation of their nutritional content. Researchers say they were astonished by the results.
Microgreens contain up to 40 times the nutrients when compared to the mature counterpart.
Adding small amounts of microgreens to your meals & smoothies can have a big impact.

Micro-greens are the only veggies my kids will eat. Most of the time they don't even realize what they are eating :)
I like that I don't have to wash them. Adding them to my meals is a super easy way to get more nutrition without really thinking about it.
My wife and I are avid juicers (mostly wheatgrass) so having a live tray makes it easy to cut what we need.
