Something I love almost as much as my chocolate ~ is BITTER GREENS.

Why you ask!?

These powerful healing leaves actually become quite delicious the more you eat them, PLUS they are amazing for promoting beautiful skin, detoxifying the liver, & encouraging sluggish digestion.  Pictured is a fresh crop of dandelion leaves from my small herb garden… also marinated BITTER GREENS.

Bitter Greens

Bitter Greens for Health & Beauty
A nice healthy recipe by Abigal O'Neill
Cuisine: healthy kitchin
Recipe type: side dish/topping
Serves: 4
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 bunch dandelion leaves
  • 1 small bunch radicchio (very bitter!)
  • 4 tablespoons cold pressed organic olive oil
  • ½ teas celtic salt
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • half a lemon - squeezed.
  • I sprinkled over a few marigolds to serve.
  1. Cut out stems as far up as you can using a sharp knife to cut leafy bits off or remove manually
  2. Chop finely
  3. add oil, lemon, salt & agave.

YUMMM! Honestly so good. Enjoy a small spoonful with your next tasty vegetarian dish (such as the stuffed mushrooms & rice in Issue # 7)  for all the blessings they bestow!
