Broccoli microgreens offer high amounts of vitamin C and A as well as protein and calcium but just 12 calories per ounce.

A 1/4-cup serving of the Sunflower shoots contains 190 calories, 16 grams of total fat, 2 grams of saturated fat, 8 grams of polyunsaturated fat, 6 grams of monounsaturated fat, 6 grams of carbohydrate, 2 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein. While sunflower sprouts are high in fat, they contain mostly healthy unsaturated fats. Eating more polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats in place of saturated fat may help keep your cholesterol level in check, according to the American Heart Association.
New science reveals that red cabbage microgreens contain about 7 calories per ounce, 40 times more vitamin E, and six times more vitamin C, aka ascorbic acid, than the same veggie as a fully mature plant. That’s a lot of colds prevented, and inflammation decreased. Red cabbage microgreens also are a good source of dietary fiber and contain a type of group of phytochemicals or compounds called polyphenols. Polyphenols offer antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer benefits.
See you at the market!
