There are several good reasons to be considering eating microgreens. Microgreens are essentially a superfood in a 1/2 cup serving, which averages only about 0.2 grams carbohydrates, 0.2 grams fat, and no more than eight grams protein. Microgreens are loaded with lots of essential vitamins, like vitamins A, E, C, B5, B6, magnesium, riboflavin, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, silicon, niacin, thiamin, folic acid, riboflavin, thrombin, and folic acid. All of these vitamins and minerals are very important, and eating microgreens is the easiest and most delicious way to get all of your nutritional needs met.
The reason why microgreens are so wonderful is that they are completely natural. The best part about growing your own vegetables is that you know exactly what you are getting each food. While microgreens can be grown in a traditional garden, it is easiest to start out with a shallow container made out of cardboard and potting soil and then just cover them up for a couple weeks and move them into a larger container or use them immediately.
As for the health benefits of eating microgreens, they are rich in antioxidants and can help support your body’s immune system. They have also been shown to increase the production of digestive enzymes, which can increase your metabolic rate while simultaneously helping to clear out the body’s waste product. Radish juice, another favorite of vegans and vegetarians alike, contains a high level of polyphenols. (It has more polyphenols than cranberry juice and more vitamin C than oranges.) A radish soup made with a half mixture of kale and radish juice can also be rich in antioxidants.
Another delicious combination of vegetables is one that I discovered while eating out at a fancy restaurant. The waitress was serving up a dish with radish, kabobs, cherry tomatoes, radish, goat cheese and eggplant. We all dug in, and while the dish was delicious, I couldn’t help but notice how healthful this meal was compared to eating three portions of the same items on our own.
So how do you find the perfect keto greens powder? It is possible to purchase pre-made varieties at the store. However, there are dozens of recipes online that are healthy but still taste great. The key to finding these is to read the label carefully. For example, a product labeled as having a “sodium pantothenate” is not going to contain any sodium.
If you really want to reap the most health benefits from microgreens, you should use them raw. Raw nuts and seeds are amazingly flavorful. Try roasting a couple for a bit to reveal their intense nutty flavor. If you are buying ground nuts and spices like garlic salt or cinnamon, then use the unsalted variety. When purchasing sprouts, make sure they are organic and certified because the pesticides used to kill pests can be dangerous to your health.
There are several ways to eat a wide variety of green vegetables without increasing your calorie intake. A good idea is to pair up one green vegetable with one of your favorite flavors like mint, cucumber, tomatoes, broccoli, etc. With a wide variety of sprouts, you can create delicious salads with a wide variety of colors and flavors.
When shopping for sprouts for your low carb diet, make sure they are high in fiber and carbohydrates but low in fat. Too many carbohydrates in one form causes your body to store them as fat. Remember, the fiber adds mucilage to your food which helps to draw toxins out of your intestines. The antioxidants found in microgreens fight free radicals that damage your cells and cause cancer. They also support your liver’s function so your liver doesn’t get overloaded and causes fatty deposits to build up. To enjoy the health benefits of these superfoods and to ensure you get the most from your diet, try roasting them instead of boiling.
