The more you learn about wild foods, the more you’ll discover all around you. Wild greens are a nutritionally balanced food source, growing in harmony with the cycles and structure of nature's perfect design. Wild greens their edible leaves, roots, flowers and seeds were among the first foods of humans since the beginning of their existence.
The goods necessary for our health and wellbeing have been given to us, but we find it difficult to recognise them because we have distanced ourselves from nature as never before. Horta, wild greens, or green vegetables, plays a vital role in Greek cuisine. Those who consume Greek greens are believed to live longer and have healthier skin than those who don't. In Crete, there is a dozen of Horta types—black mustard leaves, dandelion or beet greens, curly endive, sorrel, spinach, kale, and collards. As a result, there are many tasty dishes made from this healthy plant, like salads or greens pies.
