The hardest 8 minute arm exercise with trainer to the stars Tracy Anderson! She promises the "tiniest arms with great definition!"

Herb Walk with Riyana - Plantain- good info about its "drawing out" properties. Land use: drawing out toxins in the soil (so don't harvest from contaminated sites incl sides of roads). Has similar effect on us. Is used to draw out poisons (bites of all kinds incl snake). Lots of other benefits too. Never spray this stuff to get rid of it...you're killing an angel ;)

Morning wild food forage & benefits & identification of dandelion, plantain, herb robert, cleaver, thistle- great video. Very informative. Got to find some herb robert! Also, learned the thistle family, with its thorns are all edible. They have thorns to protect themselves instead of poisons.

Catnip. The cannabis of the cat kingdom. Famous for making cats deliriously crazy, catnip has health properties that are great for humans, too. Catnip can relieve cold symptoms. It’s useful in breaking a fever as it promotes sweating. Catnip also helps stop excessive bleeding and swelling when applied rather than ingested. This plant is also reportedly helpful in treating gas, stomach aches, and migraines. Catnip can stimulate uterine contractions.

Chickweeds (Stellaria media, Stellaria pubera). They are very nutritious, high in vitamins and minerals, can be added to salads or cooked as a pot herb, tasting somewhat like spinach.

Astringent, carminative, diuretic, expectorant, laxative, refrigerant

Clover- as always, Green Dean over at Eat The Weeds does an excellent job helping us identify and use wild edibles. Good clover details after link.
