Eating by Nature in Winter Time

White Eastern Pine Just recently I read a few posts that people fast on juices these days. And they drink juices made out of oranges, watermelons and other tropical fruits. But let’s think.

We live in Canada. It is winter now. Nature already prepared everything for us. If you look around in the forest you definitely will not miss pine trees. They are tall, beautiful and have very long needles. These needles are loaded with Vitamin C and A. Half a cup of crushed needles will simply substitute one full lemon by Vitamin C content. And here are some recipes for you:

Pine buds – just eat them raw. They are the most powerful in winter time, boost immune system, help with any type of respiratory illnesses

Pine needles raw – chew up into a ball and clean your teeth instead of toothpaste

Pine needles tea – ½ cup of crushed needles for two cups of nearly boiling water. I prefer not to simmer it. Simply poor it into thermos and let it sit for at least half an hour. You don’t need to drain it. If you like add some honey or cinnamon. This drink is full of vitamins C and A as well as of other important micro elements. If you have any other recipes, please, write them in the comments, this will make me very happy!
