Let Microgreens Be Your Medicine
Plants have been the source of healing for thousands of years. Herbal medicine, the study and use of medicinal plants, is still widely practiced even in countries like the US and the UK. Hippocrates, the 4th century B.C. Greek father of medicine, once said, “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.”
Eat whole foods as nature made them without artificial additives & preservatives.
Eat vegetables and fresh fruits, whole grains (wheat, oatmeal, farro, quinoa), and legumes (beans, chickpeas, lentils). Vegetables are a great source of protein and good carbohydrates, they have little if any fat. They are also a good source of dietary fiber and you need 35 grams of fiber daily. In addition, fiber has been reported to reduce the risk of colon cancer, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
Microgreens are usually classified with seaweed, nutrition yeast, juicing grasses like wheatgrass, and herbs as “medicinal foods.” And while there is still a lot of research on microgreens to be done, eating more can still give you the health benefits. So, add more fresh microgreens to your diet!
