Lately, more and more people have begun to understand just how limited, in both variety and nutritional value, our “modern” diets have become. This realization has sparked a new and widespread interest in the culinary and therapeutic uses of herbs — those plants which, although not well-known today, were honored “guests” on the dinner tables and in the medicine cabinets of our grandparents’ homes. Today, we know more about which plants are nutrient dense and are considered “super foods” such as watercress and strawberry leaves.

This eBook examines 20+ common plants easily recognized by most people, which can be used to treat many health problems.
