I love making quiche from wild greens. When we harvest healthy wild greens from unsprayed areas, the plants are so nourishing to us and our loved ones. It’s another layer of getting the medicine to the people in a way that they will love to eat! Cooking for people is one of my favorite things to do.

It was a dark and stormy night. That’s how all exciting stories begin, isn’t it? Our story begins with the advent of the cold and flu season. Dark and stormy days turn to dark and stormy nights, with us fragile folk heading indoors for warmth and comfort. As we breathe in the warm inside air, we also breathe in each other’s colds and flu viruses. What to do? What to do? Come with me, as we delve into simple remedies ...Continue Reading → Share
Nothing says, “See ya, winter!” like harvesting nettles in the early spring for food and medicine. After a long dark winter, harvesting nettles is a very welcome treat. For me, the abundance of chlorophyll, antioxidants, macro and micro nutrients, and other healing constituents in nettles provides the quintessential shot of life that is so badly needed.
Not only are nettles incredibly nutrient rich, especially in iron, selenium, niacin, zinc, and the nerve feeding, muscle relaxing trifecta of calcium/magnesium/potassium, ...Continue Reading → Share
