Maya tells us this:

Food As Medicine Class...

Many of our most common culinary herbs and garden weeds contain highly valuable medicinal properties. Wayside weeds living all around us possess special nutritional and healing powers that often surpass cultivated plants. Traditionally these medicines were eaten as foods in cultures across the globe. In this workshop we will discuss medicinal plants that can easily be incorporated into our everyday diets for maximum health benefits as well as learn some simple recipes and methods of preparation. We will discuss foods to support common ailments such as high blood pressure, insomnia, pain and inflammation, arthritis, and gut health.  We will also do some live demos and each student will receive a handout with recipes and nutritional information.
