In a perfect world, we’d be eating a plantiful rainbow, plus some vegan blueberry corncakes thrown in for good measure, and all our nutrients would be covered. But in this imperfect world, there are toxins… everywhere.  There are excitotoxins and pharmaceutical residues. There’s crap in most cosmetics, environmental toxins, and partially hydrogenated oils thrown around ...

Is this incredibly nutritious supergreen growing right under your nose? I’m willing to bet that it is! Purslane is so good for you and it’s abundant and readily available.
