Health writer Jo Robinson tells Dave Davies why we should eat dandelion:

[G]o out and find a dandelion leaf, rinse it well, and take a bite, and pay attention to your senses. For the first 10 seconds you won’t sense much at all, except you’ll notice that the leaf is hairy, and quite dense, quite chewy. Then, this bloom of bitterness [will] come at the roof of your mouth and go down your throat, and it’s going to stay there for about 10 minutes. And many of the wild plants that we used to eat had levels of bitterness similar to that dandelion. … Compared to spinach, which we consider a superfood, [a dandelion] has twice as much calcium, and three times as much vitamin A, five times more vitamins K and E, and eight times more antioxidants.


Cool! Lets eat some weeds.

Check it.

Today’s episode is yogi tea. Yogi tea is very similar to what North Americans think of as a chai tea. It’s spicy, warm and you drink it with the milk of your choice and sweeten it with honey.
