COMING SOON: We are pleased to offer KALE POWDER for a fast and easy way to get the daily advantages of one of the top Superfoods.

For an expanded and specific list of 111 superfoods below: “All of these provide great nutrition, though of course some are better than others. Most of these foods are nutrient dense, meaning that they have a high ratio of nutrients to calories.  In other words, these foods are rich in nutrients instead of a lot of empty calories.” – Source: https://healthfoodmadeeasy.com/superfoods-list/

BONUS: Microgreens are baby plants, and you can cost-effectively grow your own superfood right at home on your windowsill (or a table near a window) with seeds from any of the different types of microgreens or combinations of multiple types. See the Microgreen Starter Kit by the nonprofit company StudentFarmers.org. Here is a quick DIY video for growing any type of microgreens right on your windowsill by creating a fast and easy self-watering “planter” out of a plastic bottle. This is ideal for windowsills where you may not have room for a 10″ x 10″ or 10″ x 20″ microgreen tray: DIY Self-watering Microgreen Video
