Did you know that May is National Salad Month?! But if you ask me, every day is a good day to celebrate greens. Whether you love kale, spinach or arugula you can’t go wrong with a yummy bowl of green nourishment. Today I want to share with you one of my favorite and innovative companies that are revolutionizing sustainable agriculture: Aerofarms and their delicious Dream Greens.
With an ever growing population we need to think about how agriculture can create a more positive impact on the planet. While it’s important to nourish our bodies it is just as important to nurture our community and land on a global scale. The health of our soil is slowly deteriorating, pesticide use is overwhelming and hazardous to our bodies and earth; while food transportation is increasing carbon foot prints. Thankfully Aerofarms has come to the rescue with its innovative indoor vertical farming technology. The patented aeroponic growing system enables Aerofarms to grow their greens without sun or soil, while still infusing the roots with a treasure trove of nutrients. This enables 95% less water to be used compared to field farming-not too shabby! The result is a bounty of delicious Dream Greens that are grown year round with fewer carbon emissions and a much higher nutrient content. I personally have come to love their super tasty greens that are 100% pesticide-free. I especially enjoy their baby pac choy which I love to dress simply with a good quality olive oil, fresh lemon juice and a dusting of pink Himalayan salt.
Dream Greens are available on Fresh Direct, Shop Rite and select Whole Foods. So what are you waiting for, go eat some greens and celebrate!
Happy & Healthy Cravings! 🙂
