The other day I noticed how many dandelions were popping up in our yard. For some reason, this caught my eye and I began to remember how much I loved them as a kid. I used to make numerous crowns for myself and my dolls, make thousands of wishes, & I even ate them before I knew they were safe to eat. I loved eating them, so started the gears in my head to spin, & I decided this year I need to use the free bounty that was given to us, the best way I can. There were two ways that came to mind: using them in our meals & beauty care products. Today’s post is all I am showing you different ways you can incorporate into your meals, with links to the recipes.
But before I share delicious recipes, I thought I would include some helpful information about the benefits of dandelions. I’ve included three helpful infographics I found on Pinterest to show you all the benefits of using the whole dandelion (root, leaves, & flower part).
Now, lets talk about the different ways you can use these bright colored flowers in your meals. I’ve researched and researched and come up with 28 different ways you can eat them. Just click on the idea and it will bring you to a site that offers a recipe that’s worth trying. So, here we go……..
