The most abundant and affordable source of good nutrition is growing much closer to your kitchen than you think.
You don’t even have to live by a farmer’s field or cultivate your own garden to take advantage of this convenient diet food.
In fact, you most likely see it every day and curse its existence instead of give it its proper place in healthy diets.
What in the world – or your lawn – could we be talking about?
The edible nutritious dandelion.
That annoying weed that you spend all spring trying to kill actually possesses several properties of healthy eating.
Some of the dandelion’s good nutrition includes a large supply of vitamin K, plenty of other vitamins and minerals, flavonoids, and fiber. Professionals even claim that every single part of this plant is edible.
A person could make side dishes for healthy meals with dandelion greens, a dandelion salad, or soup with dandelions. If you’d rather use it for drinking right than eating right, try juicing or substituting it for coffee and tea grounds.
I’m not actually advocating for you to go out in your yard right now and harvest some dandelions to throw in your salad tonight. But there is a good lesson to be learned out of this information.
If you are committed to learning how to eat healthy and being consistent with healthy diets, you have to keep an open mind. Diet food that’s filled with good nutrition comes in all forms. Just because something isn’t popular or conventional does not necessarily mean that it won’t work in healthy diets.
