Sprouts- Harnessing the Sun's Power

Sprouting is a fast and easy way to add nutritious foods that are full of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes to your diet.   Growing your own sprouts, either in jars or seeds is rewarding and can be done anytime of the year!  Listen to the Hunt Harvest Health Podcast #25 to hear Dr. Hillary talk more about the why and how’s of sprouting!  

Dandelion- The Great Restorer

What is it about dandelions that make them so resilient?  Every spring they appear in hordes and take over our grassy lawns and gardens.  Found in almost all four corners of North America, dandelions are not given the great healing, and culinary quality, that they deserve.  Like nettles, most people see them as pests, but if you look closer you will see a tonic plant like no other! 

Morels- The King of Mushrooms

Morels- The King of Mushrooms

Blanketing the ground in the spring, there is no doubt that morels are the King of Mushrooms.  Popping up under dying elm trees, sick or diseased white firs, poplars and cottonwoods, the morel is happiest in the worst of conditions.

Mint- The Smell and Taste of Summer

It's likely mint is one of the most popular tastes and smells in our culture.  Spearmint and peppermint gum, peppermint oil, candy canes, and a cup of mint tea, are found in most households.  Mint has a strong stimulating response, and when put into the air, is cleansing and refreshing.  Even though we find this strong herb in many candies, oils, or teas, it's unusual for many to think of it as a food.
