Beautiful Skin Food

Organic Dandelion Greens are “wonderful weeds”---bitter, bitter, bitter taste but so good for your liver and skin. You want a glowing face?, then eat these greens weekly.  For me the more bitter the better. Sometimes I add marinated sweet peppers to take the edge off. If you really want a bitter sweet flavor, add thin slices of dates.

Here’s why these weeds are so good for you.  Dandelion Greens are high in calcium, rich in iron, 14% protein (1 cup), lots of minerals and the perfect detox food.  Great for tender, sore and acne scalp because it contains anti-inflammatory properties.  For a great detox food drink blend a few leaves in your favorite smoothie.

Medium heat 1 tsp sesame oil in skillet
Add cut up greens and flash sauté for 3 minutes.
Add pinch of sea salt and cayenne pepper.  
Cooks quickly like spinach.

Green Wonder Detox Drink

The whole idea of drinking green drinks is to get you to consume more greens.
Blend well:
5 leaves of Dandelion
1/2 ripe avocado
2 cups of water
juice of 1 key lime
2 ripe plum tomatoes
1/2 tsp of sea salt
