Wellness Tip
Interval training
Interval training mimics the behavior of our hunting-gathering ancestors better than continuous exercise that maintains a constant pace for 20-40 minutes. Interval training can be defined as short, high-intensity exercise periods alternated with periods of rest. Periods of high and low intensity are repeated several times to form a complete workout.

Recipe
Dandelion and Tomato Salad
Category: Salads
Description: Pity the American dandelion. In countries across the world the dandelion is considered a delicious vegetable and is consumed with affection–and dandelion has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. In America, it is most often cursed as an irksome weed and is pulled, poisoned and otherwise generally maligned.

Dandelion gets its name from the French "dents de lion", or lion's teeth, which describes the jagged edges on the leaves. The "lion" part might be there due to the fact that the fluffy yellow flowers of the plant resemble a lion's furry mane.
Dandelion greens are loaded with beta carotene, the carotenoid phytonutrient that is a precursor to vitamin A.
Dandelions help to support digestion.
Known to reduce swelling and inflammation.
Traditionally used as an anti-viral, treatment for gout, eczema, jaundice, and edema.
Function as both mild laxative and gentle diuretic properties to purify the blood and cleanse the system.

Dandelion greens have a reputation for bitterness, but they are nicely so, and the bitterness is balanced by a lovely spiciness similar to arugula. Mature greens can get pretty bitter, but this can be tamed by blanching them.
The time to harvest dandelion greens is early in the spring, when they are their youngest and before they flower. They can be harvested again in late fall as they loose some of their bitterness after a frost. Look for young dandelions growing in rich, moist soil, making sure not to forage close to roads. They taste fresh and easy to add to any salad!
This recipes is so simple to make.
