7 Tips For Growing Nutrient Dense Microgreens in Containers

Written by Louise Hendon on February 12

Lynn Gillespie is an organic farmer and gardening educator at TheLivingFarm.org. She specializes in teaching High Performance Garden systems and is the author of the High Performance Garden eBook and the creator of the Abundance Garden and the Leafy Greens Container Garden courses. Lynn and her family have been Paleo for 4 years and you can also find her at her blog, PaleoGardening.com

Wouldn’t it be nice to eat high quality greens in your salads all year long?

Well, with microgreens, you can do just that!

What are microgreens?

Microgreens are immature plant starts that are eaten raw. They are a great way to boost nutrition and enjoy a fresh salad for dinner!

While you can find microgreens in the store, they often cost upwards of $20 per pound and typically, only a few varieties are available. However, you can grown your own at home for a few pennies per serving, and best of all, they can be ready to eat from your container garden in as little as 14 days.

Microgreens are a forgiving plant to grow, making them super easy for beginning gardeners. Growing them can also be a fun project to do with the kids – I’ve found that there is no better way to inspire your child to eat their vegetables than when they grow them themselves.

Raw Egg Protein Smoothie Bowl Recipe [Paleo, Dairy-Free, High-Protein]

Written by Louise Hendon on February 3

If you’re a fan of smoothies, but not a fan of eating meat, then this is a great recipe for getting more protein into your diet. The raw egg makes the smoothie super creamy (it’s as if you added in cream!).

The idea for this recipe came to me after seeing Mark’s Primal Egg Coffee which uses raw egg yolks to make coffee creamy and nutritious.
