Did you know that some of the most potent and healing plants are growing in or around your home?
Mario and I set out this afternoon to identify and pick a large selection of wild edibles from our property and neighboring fields. We were able to learn about a lot of wonderful plants that have up to 50 times more nutrients than even the most nutritious organic we could buy from local farms.
We picked, washed and even dehydrated many for future use. We made a Wild Smoothie and only had to add some fruit to sweeten it up.
This inspired us to also cultivate and tend some beds in our organic garden here at Kale University by planting only Wild Edibles for optimal health.
Markus Rothkranz has a great field book out there to help you identify these amazingly nutritious plants.
We picked so many types, I didn’t have room to mention them in the recipe below. Two of our favorites are Thistle and Nettles.
