SALAD INFUSION:  HEALTHY NUTRIENT BLEND

SALAD INFUSION: HEALTHY NUTRIENT BLEND

Regular price $6.00 Sale

Two cups of a fantastically nutritient-dense (and gorgeous) blend of edible wild plants and brassica flowers mixed with our organically grown micro greens!  If you're hoping to shore up your body’s defenses during this viral outbreak, this blend’s for you!!  (NOTE:  When we purchased this house three years ago we were given confirmation that pesticides have not been used here in at least a decade.  So our wild plants are same to consume!)

In this mix you’ll find:  The leaves of Sheep Sorrel and Wood Sorrel, leaves and blossoms from two types of Violet (Viola), tiny baby Muscadine Grape leaves, White Clover blossoms, Chickweed blossoms, Smilax Leaves and Shoots, Pine Sprouts, Brassica (Arugula, Radish, Kale, Mustard, and/or Komatsuna) blossoms, Baby Spinach leaves, and a blend of our micro greens (Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrot, and Basil).

HOW TO USE THE MIX:  We suggest blending this in with your salad greens so that roughly 2 TBSP end up in each serving.  The reason is that some of the most beneficial properties of the wild plants are also best in moderation.  If your stores don’t have salad greens available right now, you can also add 1-2 TBSP into your smoothies, onto sandwiches, or into things like chicken and tuna salad!!  DO NOT COOK THIS MIX!  Several of the wild greens have properties that make their texture highly unpalatable when cooked. 😂

In case you can’t already tell, I’m VERY excited about this particular salad infusion. I’ve been watching our woods for weeks, waiting for my favorite edible wild plants to emerge!  Foraging around and picking them is frankly a back-breaking labor of love.  But these plants are a powerful ally in our quest for health, and I wanted to share it with you guys!  If you’d like to read more about the health benefits of the wild plants I’ve included, check out these links:
