What a ride 2012 was. I left Colorado Springs for the Thornton (Denver) area, left my pet job, now I am working for a nutraceutical company. It was a total life change but is was worth it. We are back almost in the same place that we first came to Colorado to live in. Just a block or two away. Talk about going full circle! This year has had election ad bombardment, tragedy in many places, needless loss of life, new beginnings for many people…and no Mayan Apocalypse! (Didn’t think there was going to be one anyway). So now we are on the edge of a new year and looking forward to making this one of the best yet! I am looking for great changes to take place in my life and I will share all these changes with you folks. I will be starting a podcast on Raw Food nutrition and will also talk about wild foods growing in your area! Look forward to me sharing a lot of video content as well. I will be making some great recipes and sharing some other adventures in the raw food world as well. I have been studying and learning lots of great things that I am sure can help you with any changes you want to do for 2013.
Look for another book or two from me as well. I will be publishing them for the kindle so I will have them on Amazon. I will also create some video educational programs that I will put on Amazon as well. But I will still make lots of wonderful free content that I will share on this site and Youtube as well.
I want to thank everyone for visiting my site in 2012 and promise some new and exciting content for 2013. Thank you all and many blessings!
What a day. Fall is in the air. The mountains had a bit of ice and frost on the trees. I went for a long fall walk and came across some wild foods and herbs. I found a wild apple tree and had a couple of apples. They were wonderful. Nice crispy and sweet. Some of the apples were out of my reach and I don’t climb trees. Not in my mindset to do so. I may come back later with an extending stick and harvest a few more! I also found a large Camomile plant. It has some moisture on it that I am sure was frost. The plant has fat fuzzy leaves and the leaves were used in past times as rouge. Women would take the leaves and the slight irritation would make their cheeks rosie and pink. What an interesting use. The flowers (it is past time to get those and this plant didn’t have them) are used as a calming agent in teas and herbal complexes. They grow from a long stalk and you would pick the yellow flowers to dry and use later. It also makes a great tincture!
I hope you are able to get out and do a nature walk and find wonderful wild foods in your area. Dandelions grow everywhere!!
