With the warmer weather the Earth starts giving us the food that our bodies need. Dandelions are starting to pop up. This fabulous Spring vegetable is very good for us and comes at the start of Spring which is the season of cleansing and new starts. Many people don't realize but dandelion greens are included in most Spring Salad mixes. The plant provides us with potassium, iron and zinc, as well as vitamins A, B, C and D. It is a great cleanser for the body and flushes our system—it's a diuretic. Ancient civilizations used it to treat swelling, digestive issues, kidney problems, inflammation, appendicitis, liver and gallbladder problems and stomach problems. How to incorporate dandelion into your diet—use it in salads, saute it then dress it with a little lemon and sea salt and olive oil (check out the new recipe in my recipe section). Make dandelion tea-one of my favorites. Don't forget too look to the Earth to tell you what time of year it is for your food sources and body. When the Spring greens start sprouting, start cleansing with the greens. Incorporate a little Spring into each day, and eventually, each meal and your body will thank you for it.
