Weeds = Superfood?
I believe I have mentioned that weeds are naturally high in antioxidants due to the simple fact that they flourish without human aid, but I will admit that tossing weeds into the salad mix hasn't been a top priority for me until now. Baltimore Sun reporter, Julie Deardorff, points to Dandelion greens as an excellent source of vitamin A, calcium, iron, folate and potassium, in this great interactive on the newspaper's website. Talk about turning a negative into a positive, huh? Dandelions taking over your lawn? As you yank 'em, pull off those leaves!
