Have you ever noticed that most of the superfoods and super drinks are a deep green in color. Kale, broccoli, wheatgrass, green tea, greens, algae. The color green of all is principally derived from the chlorophyll from the various plants and is a essential part of a healthy diet.
Over forty years ago, a visionary holistic practitioner, Ann Wigmore, observed and remarked that the modern diet of "convenience food" was the prime cause of illness and obesity. She was the pioneer who brought wheatgrass and raw foods to the attention of health and wellness seekers.
As Ann describes in an autobiographical note, "I have been growing buckwheat lettuce in my indoor garden for years. These greens are an excellent source of chlorophyll, vitamins A and C, calcium and lecithin (a fatty substance that is valuable in the diet because it helps the body to eliminate excess cholesterol). Sunflower greens contain the various nutrients of sunflower sprouts with the added benefit of chlorophyll. Buckwheat lettuce and sunflower shoots have been a mainstay of the Living Food Lifestyle for a number of years."
We chose the term Qi, or life force, to symbolize putting health and essential elements back in our lives and bodies. Our first Qi product is a mix of microgreens that is grown hydroponically in sea solid liquid fertilizer. This is how we reintroduce the trace minerals into a natural, raw mix, as Ann Wigmore envisioned.
We added some pea shoots into this tasty mix for their wonderful taste and high nutrition. Pea shoots contain seven times more vitamin C than blueberries, eight times more folic acid than bean sprouts, and four times more vitamin A than tomatoes. Our hydroponic growing solution features a full spectrum of 90 trace minerals that will give your plants and body an additional benefit to our microgreens.
Our Qi mix will be available this week in three sizes featured our newly relaunched store..
