A New You

Happy New Year!

I love January, the chance to reinvent yourself, and make plans for the year ahead. Whether we resolute to give up a bad habits or to get on a new work out plan, eating better and more nutritious whole foods is something we all need to get better at.

Statistics show that only 8% of the population are successful with their New Year's resolutions. I think this is often from setting too high of expectations on yourself that people end up failing and falling into their old ways. Instead, choose manageable goals for yourself and if you slip up a little, that's okay! There is no deadline for improving yourself, every day is a new day.

One way you can do that is by introducing MicroGreens into your diet. Recent studies have shown that MicroGreens on average had four to six time more nutrition than their adult counterparts. Some varieties of radish had up to 20 times more nutrition than adult radish! Now that is pretty amazing.

Packed full of phytonutrients and high levels of Vitamin A, K, and C, you can't go wrong by adding MicroGreens to nearly any dish. Here are some examples on how I use them throughout my day:

Breakfast:

I LOVE to throw them in with my smoothie. Roughly about 2 tablespoons worth of MicroGreens in with my kale, spinach, almond milk, banana, and frozen blueberries. Sometimes I even blend in some bee pollen!

or

Whip up an omelet! Chopped garlic, onion, pepper, spinach, perhaps even a little cheese. Be sure to use free range, organic eggs. I either sprinkle the MIcroGreens right in the egg solution or top right before eating

Lunch:

Add MicroGreens to your sandwich! Great in chicken, tuna, or egg salad. Or just with cheese and turkey for some nice nutritional crunch!

or

Fabulous garnish on soup (looks pretty too)

Dinner:

Roasted veggies and broiled salmon? Throw some MicroGreens right on top for added color and nutrition

or

Sprinkle them in your tacos in place of lettuce or slaw. Your friends will think you're super fancy.

Like I always say, get creative with them! What is your resolution for 2014?
