Veggies like kale, cabbage and broccoli are very nutritious at 7-10 days old. There are USDA studies that show this! So eating just a handful of microgreens can add quite a punch of flavor and nutrition to every meal. 

Microgreens vs. sprouts

Wondering about the difference between sprouts and microgreens?

Sprouts and microgreens may look similar, but they are slightly different stages of a plant’s life. Sprouts are the beginning of growth. A sprout is produced when a seed starts its journey of growing into adulthood. Microgreens are the intermediate stage between sprouts and baby greens, and they grow in about 7-14 days. 

Megan Dixon, ITS– “I received an at-home microgreen growing kit from my Secret Santa this year, and our entire family has enjoyed it! We love watching little sprouts of life emerge from the soil during a time of year when the outside can be dark and gray – plus, the zesty kale greens are a delicious addition to our meals!”
