Not all that stings is bad

August 16, 2017

Sometimes what stings in life can actually be highly #beneficial .... #stingingnettles (#urticadioica ) offer us exactly this scenario. Nettles have properties which support #kidneyfunction #allergyrelief , lowering of #bloodpressure and #arthritisrelief with its' #antiinflammatory affects. In comparison to spinach, 10 grams of nettles contains 290 mg of #calcium and 86 mg of #magnesium compared to 10 mg and 8 mg respectively for spinach. Nettles make a great #teainfusion or can be cooked which mitigates the "needles". After a #foraging bounty of nettles and mushrooms in the #sanjuanmountains of #colorado I sauteed them with harvested #oystermushrooms , portobellos and zucchini over a sweet potato millet mash up. Yum!! #eattheweeds #foodasmedicine #foodsovereignty #wildfood #resist
