Eating healthier should never compromise flavor!
Happy New Year, AeroFarms FlavorHub™! 2023 is here. The beginning of a new year is a great time for all of us to reflect and reset. Many of us set big resolutions at the start of the new year, but we’re here to offer a quick and achievable way that you can meet those healthy eating goals without any daunting, life-changing resolutions… we’re calling it new year, more greens!
Simply add our bursting-with-flavor microgreens to your favorite dishes for a boost of nutrition, flavor, and an elevated look! Adding AeroFarms microgreens to sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, pizza… let’s be honest – anything, is a great way to set an achievable, easy goal for yourself. Our greens can be enjoyed right out of the container, no washing needed, making them a quick addition to just about every dish.
Groundbreaking stuff, isn’t it?! Well, it actually kind of is. AeroFarms microgreens are grown in our indoor vertical farms where our award-winning team of plant scientists focus on optimizing the greens for superior nutrition and taste above all else. That means every bite has peak nutritional value and is bursting with unique flavor. These small and mighty microgreens are packed with vitamins and minerals. In fact, microgreens can contain considerably higher levels of vitamins and carotenoids—about 5X greater—than their mature plant counterparts, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.
Not only are AeroFarms greens great for you, but they also taste great. These greens pack bold flavors unlike any other on the market, which will make your healthy eating journey more enjoyable and fun. So AeroFarms FlavorHub™, if this is your new year’s resolution, check out the brief guide below outlining a few easy ways to get the nutrients you’re looking for in the new year.
Enjoy as a Personal Salad
AeroFarms microgreens make a great salad base because their size makes them the perfect bite every time, plus they are ready to eat right out of the container. No chopping and no washing makes for much easier meal preparation.
Our Broccoli Slaw Salad features a full serving of AeroFarms Micro Broccoli, a sweet and earthy green that is a rich source of sulforaphane, a sulfur-rich compound studied for its antioxidant, detoxifying, and disease prevention properties. Our Pomegranate and Pistachio Cress Salad is made with AeroFarms Baby Watercress, which is considered one of the most nutritious plants in the world. Watercress is an excellent source of Antioxidant Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K, and is a good source of essential minerals including Calcium and Manganese.
Dress Up Wraps + Sandwiches
It’s less about what you take out of your diet and more about the good things you add in! Put a big handful of greens in your wraps and sandwiches for a boost of delicious nutrition. This Falafel Wrap incorporates two kinds of AeroFarms greens: our nutrient rich Baby Watercress and our hearty Micro Super Mix.

This Superfood Banana Smoothie Bowl incorporates our Baby Kale and Micro Kale for double the Antioxidant Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K. Plus, kale is a good source of essential minerals including Calcium, Potassium, and Manganese. You can find a variety of other delicious smoothie recipes that use AeroFarms greens here.
