Availability of fresh, healthy food.

Sunday, July 01, 2012

I live in a suburb of Chicago and am aware the people of south chicago are often without decent food choices in some of their neighborhoods. Sometimes the only choices are convenience stores.
When I was just a little thing my grandma would take me out to the fields to gather wild greens. I'm fortunate great ethnic grocers are plentiful by me but perhaps an empty lot would have dandilions greens, etc.
Visit websites to see pictures....

or Google edible wild greens to learn about free greens. remember to wash throughly to get ride of dust, dirt, pesticides.

    I let those weedy dandelions grow in the back yard so I can add their greens to my smoothies and sautes. And purslane is an awesome wild foraged green, too.
