Healing Power of Wild Edibles

dandelion wild edible Healing Power of Wild Edibles One of the common questions I am asked almost daily is: “You have dandelions in your recipe but where can I buy them? None of our local stores carry them.”During the past two years, I have been working on two new books, for which I have done a lot of research. I have come to the firm conclusion that many of wild edibles don’t have equally beneficial analogues among cultivated plants. For example, the nutritional value of purslane, borage, dandelion, and stinging nettles, greatly exceeds the nutritional worth of commercial greens. I don’t want to discourage you from making smoothies from your store-bought greens. Rather, I invite you to learn identifying the edible weeds and really use them.

Here are three recipes from my up-coming book. Wild greens are so rich in certain nutrients that they can literally heal your body. (Please ask for my written permission before sharing these recipes)
