Microgreens are excellent sources of high-quality protein and are easy to digest. They are live multivitamin tablets available in nature.

micronutrients. Even a handful of microgreens are enough to energize your salads and wraps.
What are the health benefits of microgreens?

Why grow microgreens at home?
Microgreens can be grown organically at your own small place. This will not only save money but also teach you to grow plants at a small-scale in an urban setting.
Microgreens are rich in vitamins and minerals that we can consume fresh, instead of popping vitamin supplements. Hence growing them by yourselves is ideal.
They are live foods. When you eat live and fresh- the Prana or energy of the food is high, which energizes your meal to a great extent.
The time and effort spent on the growing process also makes you mindful and involved.
Involving kids in this process can encourage them to eat greens
