Gosh I love spring time. For me, spring is all about growth, change, and making space for new things. I love how spring encourages us to make better choices and clean – whether that means our homes, our kitchen cupboards, or our bodies.
One of my favorite parts of springtime is the abundance of fresh, leafy greens. And dandelions. Did you know that dandelions are edible? It’s true! You can actually eat dandelion greens and they’re really delicious when sauteed with a little fat as this helps reduce their bitterness. You can check out my dandelion greens recipe here.
Since spring is upon us and everyone is in detox mode, I wanted to share one of my favorite tea brands with you and introduce you to two of their new teas! I’m a big tea drinker and I’ve been a fan of Traditional Medicinals tea for a long time. My favorites are their Nighty Night tea (it’s perfect before bed), Echinacea Plus tea (great during cold season), and Ginger Aid tea (helps with digestion and abdominal cramps). My kitchen cabinet is stocked full of Traditional Medicinals tea so you can imagine how excited I was when they reached out to me and offered to let me try their new blends!
For nearly 40 years Traditional Medicinals has been encouraging people to embrace plants as a way to maintain wellness. Dandelion has become increasingly popular for its ability to support the body’s natural detoxification process, which is why Traditional Medicinals recently released two new dandelion teas:
- EveryDay Detox Dandelion – Inspired by a classic European herbal formula; a blend of dandelion, licorice, fennel, and peppermint help stimulate the liver while providing support to the kidneys.
- Dandelion Leaf and Root – From roots to shoots, this enjoyably mild and sweet tea supports kidney function and healthy digestion.
