Diversity is key.
Current studies show that freshly harvested microgreens have up to 40X the nutrition of mature and cooked vegetables.
Consuming fresh harvested local microgreens will improve your immune system and disease resistance while making a huge impact on the environment by minimizing your carbon footprint.
If you've made it this far, you’re interested in changing how you eat and look at the food you buy.
It's raw and it's new so this is just the beginning.
This new YouTube channel is going to take us past the challenges of social awkwardness and divisiveness and reflect on the plant based lifestyle and positive results that have been demonstrated for decades.
With a main focus on transitioning away from eating an unhealthy diet of inflammatory foods.
The channel will share the life around it as well.
And although food is at the heart of every political and environmental cause these days, we will focus up on practical stories and ways to take action that everyone can apply in their own lives.
Like and Subscibe to the channel and feel free to share in the comments about your own experiences with trying to change your eating habits and what you’d like to learn about.

Beta carotene, lutein (cilantro)
So called Vitamin U is a derivative of the amino acid methionine, known as methylmethionine sulfonium, or S-methylmethionine.
Found in large quantities in raw cabbage.
Amino-acids, Beta-carotenes, Calcium, Chlorophyll, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Omega-3, Phosphorus, Potassium, Protein, Sellenium, Sulphorophane, Zinc
Anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, reverse diabetes, neuroprotective; lower risk of Alzheimer's, reduce risk of heart disease, reduce cholesterol, skin, eyes. Benefits also include a smaller carbon footprint to produce the nutritional equivalent from farm to table. Suphoraphane an antioxidant known to be antimicrobial, anticancer, anti-aging, anti-diabetic, and neuroprotective is found in abundance. One ounce of cruciferous microgreens contains the same amount of sulphoraphane found in 1.5 lbs of broccoli.
Polyphenols which are beneficial compounds support digestion, brain function, blood sugar levels, weight management, fight off cardiovascular disease and neurodegenerative disease and protect against blood clots.
Most familiar sources include extra virgin olive oil.
Others include certain spices, dark chocolate, beans and nuts.
Conservation is at the top of the list for most of us. Saving time and money is something we can all appreciate. Both are two main reasons for starting Desert Micro. From planting to delivery, every aspect of this business is about saving water, using less inputs as well as fossil fuels while bringing a magnitude of flavor and health.
We use around sixty gallons per day to bring upward of one hundred and twenty pounds of nutrient dense superfood to the local market.
This is the equivalent nutritional value of more than a thousand pounds of raw fully grown vegetables. That’s an amazing achievement for conservation efforts. Especially in the high desert.
