Floating Gardens Greenhouse - Microgreens: Spinach
*AVAILABLE IN-STORE ONLY*
Spinach is low in calories and fat-free, yet loaded with nutrients.
Baby spinach is high in vitamin A, vitamin K and folate. One cup of raw spinach provides more than the daily value for vitamin K, which is important for proper blood clotting. Likewise, that same serving contains more than 50 percent of the daily value of vitamin A. Vitamin A is necessary for healthy vision, immune function, and skin and bone health. A 1-cup serving also contains 15 percent of the daily value of folate.
Baby spinach is a tender leafy green, so it is especially tasty when served raw in a salad. Pair spinach with fruits, such as strawberries; other vegetables, such as roasted butternut squash; or grilled chicken. Add it to dishes to provide color, texture and flavor. Toss handfuls of baby spinach into soups, stir-fries, egg dishes or pasta to increase the health benefits of those dishes.
Floating Gardens has been serving Saskatchewan's fresh produce needs since 2008. Rachel and Chris are a sister and brother who grew up on a farm near Osler, SK. They decided to move home to Saskatchewan to start a unique farm that grows fish and plants together in order to grow hydroponic produce without artificial chemicals.
