Dear Friend,

If you ever surf the food channels or enjoy fine dining at high-end restaurants, you’ve probably seen them: microgreens.

Microgreens are simply seedlings … more mature than sprouts, but smaller than baby greens. They are greens in the cotyledon growth stage, which means they have just two to four leaves. Typically, you harvest them within 10 to 14 days, when they’re about one to three inches high.

In fact, if you’re a gardener, you may have harvested and used them, although you may not have realized it. Did you ever thin out your plantings and add the just-pulled seedlings to your salad? Those were microgreens.

Chefs love them because they add color, flavor, and texture to almost any dish. But don’t let the small size … or their trendiness among the gourmet elite … fool you. They pack an incredible punch. In fact, they’re an ideal survival food.

Here’s why every survivalist
should be growing microgreens

Assorted microgreens
Fresh, nutrient-dense microgreens are available year round with the Microgreens Survival Kit.

Reason #1: Year-round access
Survival gardening has its place, but it also has its limitations: in most places, you can’t grow fresh food in the winter. And even in the summer, you’re still at the mercy of the weather to some degree. Microgreens are different. You can grow them year-round in your home. In as little as ten days, you have a lush crop that even five-star chefs would envy. With regular, staggered plantings you’ll never want for fresh greens.

Reason #2: Absolute freshness
Seldom can you eat foods as fresh as microgreens. From harvest to plate is literally minutes … which means you’re getting the freshest enzymes and nutrients possible, before they begin to deteriorate. Even food from the farmers market isn’t this fresh!

Reason #3: No pesticides
Because you grow microgreens indoors under controlled conditions, there is absolutely no need for toxic pesticides. Just pure, clean, fresh food, the way God intended.

Dehydrated emergency meals … or even plain old rice and beans … can be lifesavers, but let’s be real. Emergency rations are just not as appealing as fresh food. But when you add microgreens to emergency dishes, you take them to a whole new level. 

Reason #5: Nutrient density
Because microgreens are harvested so young, they are often more nutrient dense. In many cases, the seedling contains the same total amount of nutrients as its larger, more mature counterpart … which means bite for bite, you’re actually getting more vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutrients.

A recent University of Maryland study proved it beyond any doubt. Researchers looked at a number of different types of microgreens and compared them with fully-grown crops. What they found astonished them: depending on the variety, microgreens can contain anywhere from 3 to 39 times the nutrient density!

Why Microgreens Should Be A Part of Your Survival Diet
… AND Your Daily Diet

Study after study shows that leafy greens are an important part of a healthy diet. We surveyed the extensive medical literature and share here just a few of the thousands of scientific studies that underscore their many benefits:

  • Greens are rich in magnesium, which is necessary for over 300 functions in the body. Sufficient magnesium can help lessen your risk for cancer, risk of stroke, and improve your energy … to name just a few things.
  • The Vitamin K found in leafy greens can lower your risk of diabetes.
  • Greens help support healthy blood pressure and heart health.
  • Other compounds in greens, such as the glucoraphanin in broccoli, also help to reduce cancer risk and protect heart health.
  • The high folic acid content in leafy greens may help keep your brain younger longer, say brain researchers.
  • The abundant lutein and zeaxanthin found in leafy greens are nutritional workhorses, supporting eye health, protecting against cancer, and supporting cardiovascular health.

And then there’s all that chlorophyll … the stuff that makes greens green. The molecular structure of chlorophyll, say scientists, is very similar to that of human blood. Research is only in the beginning stages for this amazing plant compound, but what scientists have learned so far already shows great promise. For starters, chlorophyll has long been known as a potent detoxifier. But that’s not all. Chlorophyll and its component chlorophyllin act as powerful antioxidants that confer numerous health benefits. Among other things, these amazing naturally occurring compounds:

chlorophyll’s molecular structure Chlorophyll has long been known as a potent detoxifer, but it has many other health benefits as well.
  • Boost the activity of key immune system cells including T cells, B cells, and macrophages.  
  • Help protect against toxins and their effects on the body.
  • Potentially help inhibit formation of calcium oxalate kidney stones.
  • Demonstrate anti-carcinogenic properties, according to animal and in vitro studies..

With everything that microgreens can do for you, it’s a no-brainer to get as many as you can into your diet on a daily basis! For maximum nutrition, to preserve the delicate nutrients, you should always eat your microgreens uncooked.

Here are just some of the many ways you can use microgreens:

  • Add them to more mature greens in salads … or, if you don’t have access to mature greens, they can be the salad
  • Use them as a “bed” for protein dishes
  • grilled salmonAdd to sandwiches for extra flavor
  • Add to soups, omelettes, fish, and meat as a garnish
  • Juice microgreens along with your favorite veggies, or add them to smoothies
  • Toss with chilled grain salads
  • Mix in with cooked vegetables right before serving (to preserve all the delicate nutrients, we don’t recommend cooking microgreens).

In point after point above, we’ve showed you how healthy ordinary greens in general are for you. But remember, microgreens are in a whole different league … with 3 to 39 times the nutrient density of their mature counterparts! 

Microgreens contain essential nutrients like vitamins A, C, E, K, B6, riboflavin, and folate, as well as important minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, and manganese. They even contain protein!

It’s easy to see why adding microgreens to your diet is a no-brainer. And in a survival situation, top-notch nutrition is even more important!

Microgreens are often compared to sprouts … but they aren’t the same. The chart below reveals the many reasons why microgreens truly are “the best of both worlds” when it comes to sprouts vs mature vegetables.




Mature Vegetables


Growing medium






Water, soil, or hydroponics growing pad

Time to harvest


48-72 hours


Depending on variety, 6 weeks to 3 or more months


10-14 days

Risk of exposure to harmful bacteria

Year round

As you can see, only microgreens are ready to harvest within 10 days, contain loads of chlorophyll and nutrients, can be grown year-round, and haven’t been associated with food recalls due to bacterial contamination.

Growing your own microgreens is easy and enjoyable. We’ve carefully selected some of the most healthful microgreen varieties for the Microgreens Survival Kit.

Here are the seeds you’ll get:

Red Garnet Amaranth (.3 oz, 5000 seeds)
The western world knows amaranth as a grain, although technically it’s not. What is less well known is that in many countries, amaranth is grown as a leaf vegetable. The flavor is similar to spinach, but a bit “earthier.” Amaranth microgreens will add depth and heartiness to salads. University of Maryland research reveals that microgreens of this variety are especially rich in phylloquinone, a form of Vitamin K that helps support normal blood coagulation processes … and a vitamin that many people don’t get nearly enough of!

Standard Arugula (.5 oz, 5000 seeds)
If you like arugula’s nutty flavor, you’ll love the micro variety. It’s as versatile as regular arugula. If you want to try something truly delicious, pile some on top of a slice of pizza. Really.

Genovese Basil (.4 oz, 5000 seeds)
If you like basil, you’ll love basil microgreens. Bam! Talk about flavor! Toss this micro-basil with a plate of pasta and some olive oil and garlic, and you’ll have one of life’s greatest delicacies on your plate. Throw some into a salad to turn up the flavor. Use it in dressings, as a garnish, and anywhere else you want robust flavor.

Detroit Dark Red Beet (1.4 oz, 2500 seeds)
For people who don’t care for beets, have no fear. Beet greens don’t taste like fully grown beets, and these microgreens are even more nutrient dense than their mature counterpart. Use them anywhere you would use greens of any kind.

De Ciccio Broccoli (.7 oz, 5000 seeds)
Broccoli has always been a nutritional powerhouse, and broccoli microgreens are no different. The high concentration of glucoraphanin has numerous health benefits. You’ll want to add these delicious micros to every dish on your table.

Standard Cilantro (2.4 oz, 5000 seeds)
University of Maryland research reveals that cilantro microgreens have triple the beta carotene as regular cilantro. In fact, they’re rich overall in carotenoids, including lutein, zeaxanthin, and violaxanthin. Cilantro is a well-known detoxifier. If you like cilantro, you’ll love the intense flavor of cilantro microgreens. When you cook your survival rice and beans, be sure to pile on these cilantro microgreens for superb flavor … and pumped-up nutrition!

Dwarf Blue Kale (.7 oz, 5000 seeds)
If regular kale is a nutritional powerhouse, imagine what kale microgreens will do for you! And unlike regular kale, which is tough and almost impossible to eat raw, micro-kale doesn’t require any cooking. At the micro stage, it’s tender enough to eat raw.

Lettuce Mix (.3 oz, 5000 seeds)
You’ll want to grow plenty of lettuce microgreens for those times when mature lettuces simply aren’t available. Best of all, you get more nutrition per mouthful with these micros. Even if you don’t have anything else to add to your salad, the flavors of micro-lettuce can stand on their own.

Southern Giant Mustard (.3 oz, 5000 seeds)
If you like the tang of regular mustard greens, you’ll love micro-mustard greens. Put them on the fork alongside traditional meats like pork shoulder, or wild salmon, and you won’t believe the flavor!

Dwarf Grey Sugar Pea (.7 oz, 5000 seeds)
Crisp and tasty, these tender pea greens will complement just about anything you can pair them with. Use as a garnish, toss in with other greens for a salad, or blend some in your smoothie.

Champion Radish (2.2 oz, 5000 seeds)
Mature radish greens can be prickly and the last thing you want to eat. But not radish microgreens. Tender and packed with nutrients, they’re a great addition to any dish. A University of Maryland study revealed that radish microgreens are rich in Vitamin E tocopherols.
Small Seeded Sunflower (1 oz, 1000 seeds)
You’ll love the nutty flavor of sunflower microgreens. Just two weeks from planting to harvest. Packed with minerals, chlorophylls, enzymes, and even protein, no microgreens garden is complete without these.
