The Latest Superfood

The Latest Superfood

 The latest findings in the Superfood stakes.  This sounds good and I hope it will become widely available!

  • In one study, mice on a high-fat diet were given red cabbage sprouts, which helped optimize their cholesterol levels better than the control group
  • The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) did a similar study on 25 different commercially available sprouts, finding that in comparison with the mature version, they were nutritionally far superior
  • When you eat just about any vegetable, from sweet potatoes to radishes to Brussels sprouts, their microgreen counterparts will net higher nutritional advantages, pretty much across the board
  • Purchasing sprouts can cost as much as $30 per pound, but growing your own is an easy way to remedy that
