Just how healthy and long lasting are your microgreens?
If you want to nerd out on the science, check out >this article<
Microgreens contain up to 40x more nutrients than their adult counterpart. That means a handful is all you need to supercharge your diet.
Our bodies evolved to get our nutrients primarily from plants. Young seedlings are full of powerful nutrients designed to help them get to adult life. By harvesting at the first leaf stage, microgreens harness this power and let you get a concentrated amount of goodness at every meal.
Since growing them and eating them regularly, our team has personally noticed how we have more sustained energy and avoid getting sick.
What’s the difference between "All Systems Go!" and "Spice Up Your Life!"?
How should I eat microgreens?
You may recall photos of microgreens sprinkled as a garnish on fancy restaurant fare. At Gorge Greens we want to dispel the idea that microgreens are just “vegetable confetti”. Instead, we really want you to GORGE GREENS! Get it? 😸
Replace the lettuce in a sandwich, wrap, burrito or burger.
Eat a handful for breakfast with a poached or fried egg on top, drizzled with a little balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and fresh ground pepper. (Elona’s favorite)
Add a handful to your salad.
Add a handful to a bagel with cream cheese.
Add a handful to a bowl of ramen.
Add a handful to a bowl of beans and rice.
Add a handful to any soup or stew.
Add a handful to your smoothie.
How much is 8 oz of microgreens and how much is a pound of microgreens?
What do I do if I have leftover microgreens when my new bag arrives?
Freeze them for throwing into smoothies or sautee them into a delicious frittata!
How much money am I saving over retail with a Porch Drop?
Full pound / 16 oz ($7.99X4=$32 $32-$22= $10 savings)
How do I store my microgreens for long-lasting freshness?
Our ziploc bags are not the ideal microgreens storage container. For optimal longevity, transfer your microgreens into a tupperware container with a clean, dry napkin or paper towel lining the bottom and close the lid tightly. Store in the refrigerator. They should last at least 2 weeks this way!
How do I know when and where to pick up my first order?
As long as we have your cell phone number, we will text with the pickup address as soon as we deliver to your location.
What should I do if I forgot to pick up my order?
No one contacted me to pick up my order. What should I do?
