so I have received quite a bit of feedback, via this blog, e-mail, and in person, regarding my dandelion post. Here is a quick follow up so you can receive this incredible goodness year round.
We grow three raised beds worth of greens each summer. We have a variety of lettuces, chards, and kales, and then dandelions all over the place. We eat them in a variety of ways, or juice them each day. As the sun gets higher and it gets warmer, these plants grow too fast for us and we just can’t eat that much, so we cut and juice them to make GREEN CUBES!
All fall and winter we have deep rich green goodness. A color so welcome during the winter months, but nutrition like nobodies business!
We will thaw and add a cube a week to our dogs raw mixed meal or kibble.
We will use one cube in a smoothie or juice blend, or add to a homemade soup.
This is concentrated goodness, and you can feel your body get happy as soon as it passes your lips.
I love gardening, I love my garden, and I love that we can eat from it year round this way.
All you need is –
Ice cube trays
lots of mixed greens, cultivated and wild (that are safe to eat)
To fill one ice cube tray you need a complete colander full of greens. Rinse greens, and then juice away. Make sure it is a variety!
Have fun, enjoy, and let you and your dogs be healthier and happier! ~ Nancy
