Thanks for this wonderful party. Today I’ve shared Edible leaves: Linden leaf salad. Edible wild plants have a special part in my diet. They contain 3-4 times more minerals and vitamins than grown plants.

Hi Jenny,
After learning that I was anemic my mom started giving me beets regularly as a child. I never really loved cooked beets that much until I started exploring creative recipes like yours.

Hi Barb,
As a busy, multi-tasker, I can totally relate to the insights you shared! It is always so therapeutic for me to read someone else’s solutions to similar problems. I usually find one or two nuggets that help me solve an issue or challenge of my own. When I hit rock bottom I like to relax my mind by turning off the computer and spending some light “me time”–such as getting a massage, having a relaxing facial or pedicure, taking a long walk in the sun or spending happy time with a friend or loved one. Thank you for sharing this wonderful post with us at the Healthy Happy Green and Natural Party Blog Hop!

Spring is clearly my favorite time of the year. It feels like a time of rebirth for me so I totally agree with the idea of Spring as the perfect time to clear out the cob-webs in my mind, home, closets, office, etc.It is definitely time to declutter! I am so glad you shared your lovely insights at the Healthy Happy Green and Natural Party Blog Hop! I appreciate it!
