MAKE YOUR FOOD YOUR MEDICINES & YOUR MEDICINES YOUR FOOD

I just got back from teaching at a herb conference in the Kootenays. A special treat was a one day “foraging” workshop. We harvested herbs and prepared a real feast from the treasures we found. See menu below.

I encourage you to spend time in nature and benefit from the bountiful menu that Mother Earth provides for us. Start “grazing” and sample the different plants, get to know some of them, be creative and add them to your cooking.

Feel free to share any of your recipes on this page.

Green Blessings,

Thought of the Day

Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

“Many people walk in and out of your life, but only love will leave footprints in your heart…”
