Singing the Praises of Purslane

Since I started looking into the health benefits of purslane, it's been nothing but good news. Men's Health published a list of the 10 Best Foods You Aren't Eating, and purslane made the list (along with guava and prunes). Also, I was reading a yahoo article today about mental health, and they point to omega-3s (which purslane has lots of) as helpful in preventing inflammation.

The other night I made burritos with black beans, roasted potatoes, sauteed squash, cheese, purslane, and salsa. They were delicious!

Sasha (one of our working members) makes smoothies every morning for her girls that include purslane from her yard.

This month Food & Wine magazine
featured a recipe for Chilled
