"Microgreens are super healthy and loaded with nutrients. If you're looking to add some to your diet, try growing them yourself with these microgreen growing kits."

At this point, you’ve probably heard of microgreens. Essentially seedlings (or young plants) of veggies and herbs, they’re only a couple of inches tall and are loaded with nutrients.

While you can buy microgreens in stores, they oftentimes come in plastic packaging at the grocery store. They can also be costly. The solution? Microgreens kit options that allow you to grow and harvest microgreens of any kind right in the comfort of your own home.

Why Microgreens?

Microgreens are more than just a food trend. In fact, many refer to them as superfoods. One study found many microgreen species had higher levels of vitamin C, vitamin E, and carotenoids when compared to mature crops. Specifically, red cabbage and cilantro microgreens had higher concentrations of ascorbic acids and carotenoids than matured crops.

Because of these benefits, adding microgreens to your favorite salads, soups, and sandwiches could be an easy way to add a nutritional punch. If you’re looking to grow microgreens at home, here are some microgreens kit options to get you started.
