it's in the greens

We bought the magic bullet and have been enjoying the fruity blended drinks.  But wanting more in the way of nutrition I got the bright idea of adding "weeds" to them.  I've know about the benefits of "weeds" since I was a child.  But the idea of digging dandelions, as mom put it, is too much work for such a small output.  Dandelions are great for our health.  Besides being rich in Calcium and anti-oxidants they are packed with all kinds of nutrients that might benefit liver issues, diabetes, cancers, gall bladder problems.

Anyway, I ventured out doors for some homegrown goodness calld "our lawn" (it's mostly made of a everything but grass) and came away with a leaf of dandelion, plantain, oxalis, lambs quarter, and a small smidge of burdock.  To that little handful I added some fresh blueberries, black grapes, pineapple, apple juice, and frozen strawberries.
