Eating Flowers

Check out what I scooped up at the Farmers Market today. An amazing salad filled with edible flowers.

I remember in one of David Wolfe’s videos he discussed the benefits of eating flowers. He amentioned that humans are highly attracted to flowers on many levels. For example, when you go on a date, you do not want to smell like meat but you do want to smell like flowers.

Please don’t go to your neighbors garden and rip out a bunch of pansies and put them in your salad. Flowers which you plan to ingest must be grown organically and with the right intension.

“Proper nutrition is an art. It is an art form. Every bite is a brush stroke. Every swallow is a new color. Each meal is a cloud or a tree or a flower a piece of the beautiful painting that you are becoming. You are becoming an ever more attractive work of art each day. You truly are work of art in progress. ” (from David Wolfe’s Eating for Beauty Book).
