Microgreens. Don't underestimate the size of this leafy new friend. They're small, but mighty and packed with nutrients.

The family tree includes: kale, arugula, radish, beet greens, parsley and cilantro. But despite it's full-grown family, the baby is finally getting some recognition. Harvested 14 days after germination, microgreens are able to absorb and process nutrients from the soil to increase their nutrient content. According to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry microgreens have four to six times the amount of certain nutrients like vitamins A, C, E and K. Just a handful once a day can have your body loaded with all the nutrients it needs. We highly suggest topping off your salad with a handful of these super greens.
