The year 2020 saw many changes to how we live, move about, and also eat. With the many new and continually changing health restrictions, almost everyone has had to find new ways to adapt. Finding depleted shelves of fresh produce in local grocery stores and markets has been one of the most upsetting occurrences, especially to those who strive to maintain a healthy diet.
For this reason, one of the fastest-growing trends over the past year is spouting. For those who are new to the concept, sprouting is an effortless and cost-effective way to ensure that you have a fresh supply of tasty and nutritious ingredients that can be incorporated into almost any meal. Sprouting systems can be as easy as a mason jar or as complex as desired with many drainages and covering dishes, including indoor lighting systems for commercial usages.
Many world-class chefs have been using microgreens as both ingredients in exotic dishes and also as garnishes. The reasons are simple; they are not only delicious but also highly nutritious. Many microgreens are known to have more than 40 percent higher levels of nutrients than full-grown plants, so it is a win-win for those trying to eat cleaner and more healthy options.
