Festival of the Trees Post for June

So, eat some green Redbud Seed pods and help your body get more antioxidants. Antioxidants are considered an important factor in protection against diseases such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's and arthritis. You can eat these seed pods raw and do so while they are young and green. Always leave most of the seed pods on the tree. This is nature's way of providing for more trees and for food for the wildlife.
