Adding flowers to your meal will give it an added punch of flavor as well as an aesthetic touch of elegance. Rose petals are a great nutritious resource that is full of bioflavonoids (super-antioxidants), antioxidants, and vitamins A, B3, C, and E. Lavender helps your central nervous system and also contains vitamin A, calcium, and iron. Handle edible flowers with care! Not only are they fragile, but also not all flowers should be consumed. If you suffer from pollen allergies, you should be extremely careful as it could cause a reaction.
Have some rose petals and other edible flowers with your meals! Start with adding small amounts and you’ll start to see a big impact.
