Fresh, Healthy Living in 2020 with Sprouts and Microgreens in Your Diet

Fresh, Healthy Living in 2020 with Sprouts and Microgreens in Your Diet By: Alicia Rennoll Sprouts and microgreens will be a major health trend in 2020, owing in no small part to their many health benefits and the ease with which they can be grown. In the first-ever scientific analysis of nutrient levels in edible microgreens, the American Chemical Society found that microgreens are more nutritious than their mature counterparts. It is just one of many studies proving that raw, healthy microgreens and sprouts have an important role to play in boosting our health and wellbeing. Why Go Microgreen? Researchers found that the seedlings of spinach, red cabbage, and other vegetables, when allowed to grow to within one to three inches in height and harvested within four days of germination, had a host of important nutrients. Compared to mature greens, microgreens have higher concentrations of important vitamins and carotenoids, which are essential for long-term health. If you wish to live a long happy life, try to consume a wide array of microgreens, as there
