I'm so glad Elliot and the MiracleMicrogreens™ team reached out to me to share my story. You see, I've been a customer for what feels like forever now - ever since the early days when Elliot was selling microgreens at the farmers markets in Chicago. Also, please forgive me if this is not as eloquent as it could be - I'm super busy but it was important for me to share this with you, so I just needed to knock it out. Oh, and no photo, sorry. My sweatpants will not be getting their 15min of fame :-)
I was using Lake Forest Farms' powdered microgreens long before the world changed with the outbreak of Covid-19 (actually before the current MiracleMicrogreens™ blend was even created). And even now, in the midst of all this uncertainty and unpredictability, it makes me smile to see the MiracleMicrogreens™ bottle in my cabinet, to help keep me and my family healthy and nourished. One of their sayings has always been "smiles inside each jar" and I'm the proof that it's really true.
You see, I'm a college professor in the Chicagoland area and heavily overallocated on a good day. Between teaching, grading papers, running a department, and all the other things that come with the job, it's easy to take my eye off the nutrition-ball for me and my family. That said, believe me I know how important it is to take care of ourselves, especially in today's world. That's where MiracleMicrogreens™ honestly has been a big comfort, and a bit of a secret weapon.
I've developed a few "hacks" over the years that have made incorporating these nutrient-packed greens into my daily routine even easier. I mainly add them to smoothies, sprinkle them on top of salads, in morning oatmeal/yougurt or mix them into my soup bowl. Adding them to my morning coffee is my favorite trick, and I love doing that for friends. They never believe there's a full serving of greens in that little coffee cup, even as they drink it. The possibilities are endless and my family, especially my kids, love getting extra creative with how they're used. They ask for "Mom's yummy green smoothies" every morning, but scrambled eggs with microgreens and PB&Js with microgreens sprinkled in are also fan favorites. Top of the list for the kids is probably mac & cheese - with a spoon of microgreens mixed in each bowl before I serve them.
But it's not just about the convenience. I truly believe in the power of MiracleMicrogreens™ and the positive impact they've had on my health and the health of my family. Before I started using MiracleMicrogreens, I was constantly feeling tired and run down. But now, I have more energy and just feel better overall. For me, it makes a noticeable difference. For my kiddos, they're ALWAYS high energy, so your guess is as good as mine!
I remember pre-covid times, when life was a little bit (ok, a lot) more predictable and less stressful. Working in an office instead of WFH, where people - generally speaking - listened to what I said. But even now, with everything going on, I really appreciate my MiracleMicrogreens and Lake Forest Farms. They remind me of the small things I can control and do to take care of myself and my family, and that actually means quite a lot.
That's why I was so happy to share my story with you all. I believe in the product and I believe in the people behind it. They're family, and have been with me through thick and thin. I'm honored to be able to give back in this small way. Thank you to Elliot and the team, for always being there for me, and I'm so excited to continue watching this amazing company grow.
