Crikey, mate! When it comes to a healthy diet, it’s all about balance! And that means getting enough protein and plant fiber in our meals. You see, protein is essential for building and repairing muscles 💪 , while fiber helps keep our digestive system running smoothly. 

You’ve asked for a mighty fine list of foods that complement microgreens, and I’m happy to oblige! Here are five of my favorites, along with why they’re so darn nutritious:  👇

Chickpeas 🐣: These little legumes are a fantastic source of plant-based protein and fiber, making them the perfect partner for microgreens. The protein in chickpeas helps build and repair muscle tissue, while the fiber keeps you feeling full and satisfied. Plus, the combination of chickpeas and microgreens creates a well-balanced meal that will keep you fueled and energized all day long! 

Brown Rice 🌾 : This whole grain is packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and is a great source of slow-burning carbohydrates that will keep you feeling full and satisfied. When paired with microgreens, brown rice creates a nutrient-dense meal that will keep your energy levels up and your body running smoothly.

Carrots🥕 : These bright orange root vegetables are loaded with beta-carotene, an antioxidant that helps protect your cells from damage. When combined with microgreens, carrots create a well-rounded meal that’s full of vitamins and minerals, and will keep you feeling healthy and strong.

Avocado🥑 : This creamy fruit is a great source of heart-healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. When sliced up and paired with microgreens, avocado creates a delicious and nutritious meal that will keep you feeling satisfied and energized.

Quinoa🍚 : This ancient grain is packed with protein, fiber, and essential amino acids. When paired with microgreens, quinoa creates a well-balanced meal that’s perfect for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Plus, it’s easy to prepare and makes a great addition to any salad or bowl!

So there you have it, folks – five different foods that complement microgreens nutritionally. Whether you’re looking for protein, fiber, or just some good old-fashioned flavor, these foods are sure to do the trick!🙇

Thanks Steve Irwin clone! 

Cait and I are eating the above pretty much daily. Only thing I think Steve missed are sources of Vitamin D (maybe he just uses the sun? ☀️).

We love also adding in mushrooms, eggs, and salmon into our diet pretty regularly to help cover this.

Microgreens are loaded with most vitamins and minerals we need, but they aren’t going to give us the protein and all the fiber we need into our diets. Keep your plate diverse and colorful, it’ll help keep your nutritional needs together ✌️
