Drink Your Spring Lawn

If you haven’t read my blog called, Eat Your Spring Lawn, start there.

One of my favorite things to make with all the fresh spring plants in my yard is a sun infusion. Here’s how:

Step 1:

Harvest the plants. For this sun infusion, I used dandelions, violets, cleavers, mint, and a few bee balm (monarda) leaves.

Step 2:

Wash thoroughly and place on cutting board.

Step 3:

Chop roughly, called macerating, which helps to release all of the oils and nutrients in the plants. You can use a large knife. I used this pizza cutter.

Step 4:

Add to a large jar and cover with filtered water.

Step 5:

Place in a sunny location for at least 8 hours.

Step 6:

Strain the herbs and enjoy! I like to put my sun infusion in a large jar and keep it in the fridge so I can enjoy it for the next few days.

It’s that easy!

No Time to Exercise???

The biggest block to exercise I hear is time, and I totally get it. You get the kids up, fed, and off to school or daycare, work all day, get home, cook dinner, do homework, baths, bedtime, try to spend a little quality time with your spouse, and then it’s time for bed to do… Continue Reading

Who Knew Soluble Fiber Does So Much???

The amazing cardiovascular panel I use in my practice from Boston Heart Diagnostics, goes into detail about cholesterol levels and the underlying reasons why they might be elevated.
