Microgreens and Grasses

  Microgreens are a tiny form of young edible greens produced from vegetable, herb, or other plants.  A microgreen is the stage of growth where the plant has two fully developed cotyledon leaves, and usually one pair of very small, partially developed true leaves.  They have a single stem, and are cut just above the soil line for harvest.  Microgreens tend to have intense flavors for their small size, and they are exceptionally nutrient dense.  Microgreens are most vigorous when grown in sunlight with good air flow, allowing them to achieve peak flavor, color, and nutrition.  

  Grasses are not eaten as a green, but pressed to extract their juice, which is very nutritious, and rich in chlorophyll, a potent antioxidant.  Antioxidants are a wonderful aid to our digestive and circulatory systems, helping to oxygenate, detoxify, and alkalize the blood while boosting immunity.
