Edible Flowers, Pretty but pretty good for you too!

Flowers are naturally bright and beautiful, that’s why we enjoy putting them on show in vases, they brighten up the room!

But did you know a selection of flowers are actually edible too. Some are delicate and fragrant wheras others have a bit more bite to them.

Take Roses for instance, the petals are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, add them to tea and you have a stress buster brew.

Beautiful Borage flowers are an amazing source of fatty acids which is great news for balancing hormonal systems.

Nasturtium flowers, we know the leaves are edible but did you know the spicy, peppery flavoured flowers are edible too? Not only that they are full of vitamin C!

So next time you think of adding variety to a salad or meal don’t rule out adding edible flowers as another colourful healthy dimension.
