(ModernSurvival.org) – Unwanted and undesired, weeds are plants that many people spend hours trying to remove from their yards. But are they throwing away a potentially precious resource?
The fact is, a lot of weeds are actually edible, and some are even more beneficial than store-bought vegetables.
These weeds are easily found in your backyard, and have the potential to keep you fed in a tight spot. Chock full of antioxidants and vitamins, they are much more useful than you might think.
On top of being edible, many of these also have medicinal purposes and can be used as a topical treatment. Some even help with digestive problems such as an upset stomach or constipation.
Weeds have been given a bad name, but many are quite good for us. So the next time you’re thinking about killing all of the weeds in your yard, remember you’re really only wasting resources.
