It is hard not to smile when you see your first batch of happy microgreens reach up to the sun, especially in the midst of winter. We all crave sunlight and nothing is more magical than watching these little guys turn their faces to the sun. Such a simple thing, but it never fails to lift my spirits.

Microgreens are packed with a tremendous amount of nutrients- so much more than their full-grown counterparts. I once read somewhere that eating “living” foods add years to our life while eating “dead” foods removes years from our life.

I always think of this when eating them. They are about as living as you can get! Plus they are just so cute. Right? They make everything better. Add them to things you are already making – salads, wraps, sandwiches, buddha bowls. Top off your soups or entrees with them, add to juices and smoothies. Not only are they highly nutritious- they are very flavorful!
