When you subscribe to MyGreens® you receive 3 re-usable containers every week. Each container will have a variety of microgreens, baby leaf, herbs and flowers selected from our wide range.
Baby leaves can be added to almost any dish you prepare. These nutrient-packed leaves are best combined with sandwiches, salads and smoothies. Baby leaves are the young version of vegetables such as herbs and greens. They are harvested when they are about 10-12 cm long. It is best to consume these leaves raw in your salads, sandwiches and smoothies. Studies have shown that most tender leaves are an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K, as well as iron, folate, potassium and calcium. These leaves may look small, but they are highly nutritious.
Microgreens are plants that begin to form their first set of leaves and grow up to 5cm tall in as little as 6 days. Also known as a superfood, they are used as an essential ingredient in salads and other foods as a garnish or flavour enhancer.
Add them to salads, pizzas, sandwiches, soups, wraps, dips and other side dishes for a unique burst of colour and flavour. In addition, microgreens are an incredible source of antioxidants and have been shown to fight chronic diseases such as cancer.
Using fresh herbs and flowers is one of the easiest ways to go from home chef to MasterChef. Our freshly harvested (same day) herbs, such as purple basil, with its sweet, aromatic and slightly spicy taste, or tarragon, with its peppery and sweet aniseed flavour, will elevate any meal to new heights. Our edible flowers, such as nasturtium, with its peppery, cressy taste, or pansy, with its mild, fresh flavour, are a delightful addition to your salads, herbal teas and even cakes or ice cream.
Each delivery is enough for 6 generous salads, plus herbs to garnish dishes, cocktails and teas. Each box measures 26.6cm x 16.5cm x 10cm. They all fit easily into a normal fridge. We have chosen Tupperware boxes because they DO NOT crush the tender leaves, leaving them FRESHER for LONGER. Each box also contains an organic cellulose-based pad that will absorb any humidity helping to keep your greens fresh and moisture free.
Microgreens contain 4 to 40 times more vitamins, enzymes, minerals, antioxidants and beneficial properties than adult plants. They are nutritionally dense but are also topped with an extra boost of life-sustaining chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is defined as “nature’s greatest healer”, as it contains more healing properties than any other element. Microgreens provide important nutrients for eyes, skin, bones, healthy digestion, reducing inflammation, preventing cardiovascular disease, fighting cancer and strengthening the immune system.
We provide an exciting selection of leafy greens, microgreens and herbs and flowers to create surprising, tasty and nutritious daily meals.
Microgreens and tender leaves contain up to 40 times more nutrients and minerals than their adult counterparts. They are rich in antioxidants, beta-carotene and vitamins such as K, C, A, B and E.
