What is a Nutrition Extender? It’s anything that you add to an otherwise nutrition poor food. For example; plain white rice, elbow macaroni, Ramen Noodles or a baloney sandwich. All very inexpensive, but none packed with vitamins and minerals.
Take a look at Ramen Noodles. Mostly fat, salt, some protein and Iron. Ramen can fill your belly, but does it provide you with nutrition? No. Not even close. So an extender provides that nutrition to the otherwise hallow food.
A Wild Nutrition Extender is one that you find growing wild. Examples are Dandelion, Cats Ears, Plantain, Lambs Quarters, Purslane or Bull Thistle. What’s really great is, the Nutritional values of these extenders are amazing and the price is…Free!
Above: Cats Ears, Wild Garlic, Bull Thistle chopped, added to Ramen. Now it’s worth eating!
Adding Dandelion greens to the Ramen adds, Potassium, Fiber, Calcium, Protein, Vitamins A, C and E as well as Iron. One/half cup chopped Dandelion greens turns that nutrition deficient Ramen lunch into a nutritional power house and it cost nothing to do it. That is what Wild Nutrition Extenders do.
