Interviewing the “Wild Plants Queen” Katrina Blair
by heroiqac | on March 13, 2012
So me and a few friends drove 300 miles through long winding roads, through and around the beautiful scenic mountains, finally making it to Durango to learn about Wild Plants from Katrina Blair.Durango’s a beautiful, quaint, touristy, outdoorsy, filled with hippies kind of a place. Definitely my kind of town.
I thought Colorado Springs had hippies.. Nuh uh.. Durango definitely has way more. Tree huggers, free spirits, and just naturalists in general. I have to go back!
Interview with Katrina Blair
Well the reason i went out there was to interview Katrina Blair and to tag along in her Wild Food Hike. I figured i like to take strolls in the woods, and i just wanted to know more about what it is that i can eat in the woods.
Oh yeah! you may be asking who’s Katrina blair? Hmm.. Well if you can think about the criminal Poison Ivy from the Batman comics, well it would be her, but she’s the good version. Lol! at least to me she just embodies what she teaches about plants. I’m pretty sure the plants talk to her and unveil their healing secrets too.
Well here’s my first interview with a Youtube Star in the Raw Food and Living Foods world really.
As you can see she is very down to earth, light hearted, and very knowledgeable.
I do want to apologize for the interview getting cut off. I’ll try to fill you in now though. So she went in to discussing the most common Weeds or Wild plants that can be found almost anywhere in the world that you may find yourself.
Put this in your survival skills mental tool kit, just in case you get stranded on a deserted island. This way you can feed yourself something, even if it is wild salad. Just Kidding, you can really find these in your back yard or nearby park. Trust me weeds grow everywhere with no restraint. They are wild, undisciplined, and rebels in the plant world..
But aren’t just FULL of Nutrition, but they’re MEDICINAL!
Remember Ancient wisdom says: Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.
Katrina Blair recommends getting familiar with the Most Common Edible Wild Plants (12 Actually)
- Dandelions (my favorite)
- Lambs Quarters
- Curly Dock
- Red Clover
- Soloman’s Seal
- and Sheep Sorrel
So we finish this part of the interview and just get a tour of Katrina Blair’s Turtle Lake Refuge Kitchen and what not.
So at this point i hope this interview with Katrina Blair has given you some food for thought, if you can eat a blog, then it would be blogalicious huh? Lol! Stay tuned for the next blogs where Katrina takes us through the La Plata Mountains for some Wild Plant foraging.
