A bit about sunflower seeds…More than any other flower, the sunflower suggests the glory of the summer sun itself. Wild, it lines roadways and gilds whole fields with its stunning, sun-colored mandalas. Cultivated in home gardens, it towers to impressive heights of fifteen feet in or more and boasts a flower up to two feet in diameter. A showy plant indeed.This daisy relative, which originated in western North America, is more than just show. Both sunflower seeds and sunflower tubers (jerusalem artichoke) were important Native American foods. Sunflowers were introduced in Europe in the 1500’s and have become a staple in Russia. Until the popularization of health foods in the United States in the 1960’s, its domestic use was primarily for bird feed; hence its one common name “polly seed.” Sunflower seeds are also nicknamed “sunnies.”The shells may be white, brown, black, or black with stripes. The US commercial supply primarily comes from the Red River valley of Minnesota.Health Benefits Sunflower seeds are an energy tonic and nurturing food used to treat constipation. Sunflower seeds contain more protein than beef and 20 percent fat, most of which is unsaturated. A good source of calcium, phosphorus, and iron, as well as vitamins A, D, E, and several of the B-complex, they also contain a trace of flourine, which may explain the Russians’ claim that they are good for the teeth. Sunflower seeds are tridoshic used in moderation; in larger quantities, they primarily reduce vata.Superbly Delicious!Here are a few pictures of everyone enjoying the evening!Jean & Dicky, Bless their hearts.

Vegetable Medley Soup:
To make tea:
1/2 cup nettle, or dandelion or rooibos dry tea.
3 cups tea kettle watersteep for 20 minutes.
Miso, add enough miso till you like the taste. I like to use a gluten free miso from South River Miso, it makes Miso Happy! It is simply the best! (I will be putting in a bulk order soon so if you live in my area, let me know and I will order you some!)
Add all ingredients to a bowl and serve. You may choose to warm on stove till soup is warm to the touch or you may use a candy thermometer and heat to 120 degrees.
