Microgreens are a nutrient-dense food that pack a powerful punch of flavor. But how much should you be eating? We break it down for you here.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines microgreens as "vegetables harvested at the cotyledon or true-leaf stage." In layman's terms, this means that microgreens are young greens that are typically no more than 1-3 inches tall. These tiny greens pack a big nutritional punch and are an excellent source of vitamins K, C, and E, as well as carotenoids and flavonoids.
So how much microgreens should you eat? The USDA recommends that adults eat 2-2.5 cups of leafy greens per day. This translates to nearly an ounce of microgreens..... Keep in mind that the recommended serving size may vary depending on your age, gender, and level of physical activity.
