Yes, it's that time of year again - hurray! The trees are starting to leaf, the tulips are poking out for some warm sun.... and very shortly, our yellow blossom buddies will pop up everywhere.
PLEASE don't kill them with chemicals, Bees require them for pollination and if you spray, and bees suckle them, they die.
Instead, pick the greens, wash them and put them in your salad! Here's why:
1. They contain high levels of potassium and reduces blood pressure;
2. They are rich in calcium and Vitamin C - perfect to help with bone density;
3. Stimulates the production of insulin!
4. High anti-oxidant;
5. Natural diuretic and removes toxins from the liver (Can I get another round over here?).
