Nanny called them sprouts; now they’re micro-greens

Micro-greens are all the rage.  But there is some sound science involved. Anti-inflammatory eating matters more in an age of high stress, and for women in middle-age, this is a vital component of our well-being.

Legumes have diamine oxidase. (DAO) Diamine oxidase helps form the plant from seed and is present from day three to day ten. A plant under stress (in the dark, for example, produces even more.)

Grinding sprouts up makes the DAO more bioavailable.

Nanny also touted lecithin.  That’s back in style too.  Along with organ meats. DAO is in the kidneys.

Eat up!
