Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..
Hi, and thanks for all those great links.
We eat most flowers, thistle, clover, day lily, camomile, sage, hyssop, parsley, mustard, basil, radish, cauliflower, broccoli, pretty much anything you can eat, you can eat the flowers, except nightshade, like eggplant, potatoes and tomatoes, otherwise, we eat most flowers. Oh, yes, and you can eat viola's,beautiful little fella's...
My daylilies are about to bloom ... they make a beautiful salad decoration ... and taste good too!!..
Squash blossoms are delicious and used in Latin cuisine, famously..
Borage, dandelion, and.
Violets are edible, as well as most pansies..
I would be careful to make sure you get organic, though, and, of course, not use any from a florist..
Also apple blossoms..
And how could I forget roses!.
What about the little yellow flowers that pop up when lettuce is grown a bit too long? I'm guessing maybe those are edible too??..
Dragggon says, most Medifast food that you can eat, has flowers that you can eat, we eat alot of mustard, radish, cauliflower, brocolli flowers,..
I appreciate the info, I am trying hard to make my Medifast food a little more diverse as I find I fall into the trap of eating mostly the same things, and flowers would make the Medifast food look nice as well as give me a new taste, when you say broccoli flowers I'm not sure what you mean, is that when it goes to seed or something?.
Thanks Eveleaf for all those links with so much information, so many of the flowers everyone has mentioned are in my garden and I never would of thought of eating them, so thing will be curious,.
BORAGE is my #1 favorite for edible flowers in salad. They are very pretty, they grow easily from seed, the bees love them in the garden, I think I read that they are high in omega3 and GLA or something, supposed to be good for you. The taste is a little like cucumber. They are an annual, but will sort of re-seed themselves in the same area of your garden for you every year. I strongly recommend them to you from what you were asking for...
Borage huh........ hrrm I am going into town today so I will look in the garden center for some seeds, I dont even have any idea what it looks like but I have heard of it, thanks, wow I have stax of ideas now and to think Ive never even considered using flowers before, last night I made a raw cake and sprinkled purple rose petals on the top, which I'd never of thought of before, and it looked spectacular...
