Get your Sprout on!

We recently had the pleasure of trying out these amazing sprouts from GreenGrassLife.

GreenGrassLife is a family-owned, local, organic urban farm in New York City. An amazing couple – Meliza and Jovany Veloz- founded GreenGrassLife after personally witnessing the miraculous benefits of wheatgrass and sprouts.
They were of course eager to spread the good word and quickly became one of the most dependable growers in the Tri-State area.

Sun­flower and buck­wheat sprouts, pea shoots, and sweet-tasting wheat­grass are planted, grown and har­vested in a peace­ful environment. They only use the highest qual­ity organic soil and seeds from the most rep­utable sup­pli­ers.  The coolest part?  They practice medita­tion while plant­ing to infuse their prod­ucts with pos­i­tive energy!

The company offers:
  • Wheatgrass
  • Sunflower sprouts
  • Pea shoots
  • Buckwheat sprouts
  • Young Thai coconuts
  • Personalized nutrition support and education

We love living foods like wheatgrass and sprouts because they provide tons of nutritional benefits.  They are filled with chlorophyll and enzymes, rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and plant based proteins. They supply oxygen and alkalinity.

Sprouts are a wonderful addition to salads, sandwiches, smoothies and they can also be juiced in combination with a variety of fruits and vegetables. 

GreenGrassLife sells their products to local health food stores, juice bars and individuals. AND they even deliver six days a week in the Tri-State area and ship nationwide.  So there’s no reason you can’t get more greens in your life!

For more information or to place an order,  call (800) 557 9017 or go to GreenGrassLife.
