Welcome to Julia’s Edible Weeds

Join me on a journey of discovering how wild edible plants and green smoothies can help improve your health and well-being. I’m passionate about edible weeds and leafy greens and I want to show you how to use these highly nutritious foods to boost your health and vitality.

I will be updating this site regularly with new findings from my research on edible weeds and flowers, my latest wild edible recipes, and other interesting tidbits on growing organic food and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
