Fact of the Week: Dandelion

Dandelions aren’t just a nuisance to your lawn; their leaves are a great diuretic and digestive stimulant, increasing bile production. Dandelion leaves are also used to treat loss of appetite and dyspepsia. So, instead of despairing with a lawn overrun by those pesky yellow flowers, harvest and wash the leaves and add them to your next salad, or sauté them in olive oil, garlic and pepper flakes for a tasty (and healthy) side dish!
