The health benefits of microgreens

Without doubt microgreens are the most healthy vegetables that you can eat and they have the added bonus of being able to easily grow them yourself. For me, this is a huge benefit as I can easily grow a batch of microgreens on a Sunday evening for me and my family to enjoy the following week. 

Broccoli is the king of microgreens as it has so many of your daily nutrients including Vitamin A, B, C and K. They are also a fabulous source of dietary fibre and protein. Broccoli is teeming with the antioxidant sulforaphane, so much so, that they have 50 times more than their fully-grown adult counterparts. Not bad for a Teeny Greeny!

One of the second most nutritious greens is kale. Fully grown kale is somewhat of a superfood in itself but when growing this plant on a micro-scale, it is far more nutritious. This is a leaf that is loaded with goodness. In just one cupful you can enjoy well over the adult recommended daily allowance of vitamins A, C and K, giving significant benefits for both brain and eye health.
