If there is a super-food that is rich in fiber, packed with nutrients and has the properties of live food (Prana for Vitality), it is none other than Microgreens. And if it is organically grown at home, what more do you need for a daily boost to your health? 

Curious to know how you can get started on growing your own microgreens at home without much hassle? After the highly successful first three batches of the workshop, Nutritionist Mrs. Sonal Shet is bringing the fourth batch showcasing easy methods of growing microgreens at home. Join ‘Grow Microgreens (Batch 5): Hydroponically & On Cocopeat’. 

What are microgreens?

Microgreens are live, functional food, as they contain a wide range of vital nutrients ( eg vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes) Just by eating a handful of Red cabbage microgreens gives up to 40 times more vitamin E than its mature ones. Microgreens are excellent sources of high-quality protein and are easy to digest. They are live multivitamin tablets available in nature.

At first glance, microgreens look like sprouts but they are the seedlings of various vegetables that are harvested at an early growth stage. Microgreens are a superfood rich in macro and

micronutrients. Even a handful of microgreens are enough to energize your salads and wraps.

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

“It is not easy for everyone to use soil for growing microgreens. That’s why in this edition of the workshop, we will grow microgreens hydroponically, i.e., on water. This will allow us to grow microgreens hygienically with no soil mess.”
