Do any of you garden? I do and I know how frustrating some of those weeds can be! However, did you know that dandelions in particular have a TON of natural health benefits? I love to cook with dandelion greens, which are known to lower blood sugar, reduce inflammation and provide antioxidants. You should definitely try this soup out and let me know just how yummy those pesky weeds can be!
