October 14, 2019 / By Aisling Question:
At the produce section of the store, what food is stem, leaf, or root and how can you tell. For example, we all know apples, bananas, plums, and strawberries are fruits, but what kind of stuff is a carrot, cilantro, or a potato and please don’t say vegetable.

You bought into the hype that there is only one source of stem cells and that coming from the desturction of human embros.
Which is not true.
CARROT - ROOT
The most commonly eaten part of a carrot is a taproot, although the greens are edible as well. It is a domesticated form of the wild carrot Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. The domestic carrot has been selectively bred for its greatly enlarged and more palatable, less woody-textured edible taproot.
CILANTRO - LEAF (HERB PLANT)
It is a soft, hairless plant growing to 50 centimetres (20 in) tall. The leaves are variable in shape, broadly lobed at the base of the plant, and slender and feathery higher on the flowering stems. The flowers are borne in small umbels, white or very pale pink, asymmetrical, with the petals pointing away from the center of the umbel longer (5–6 mm) than those pointing towards it (only 1–3 mm long). The fruit is a globular dry schizocarp 3–5 mm diameter.
POTATO - TUBER UNDERGROUND STEM
The potato is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial Solanum tuberosum of the Solanaceae family (also known as the nightshades). The word potato may refer to the plant itself as well as the edible tuber. In the region of the Andes, there are some other closely related cultivated potato species.

We eat pretty much every part of the plant, though not all parts of every plant. Common roots we eat are carrots. Common stems we eat are potatoes (yes, these are compressed underground stems, and not roots). A common petiole (the structure that attaches the leaf to the stem) we eat is celery. Common leaves we eat are onions (again, modified for food storage underground), turnip greens, spinach. Common fruits we eat are tomatoes, apples, and oranges. Common seeds we eat are peanuts and other legumes. Some flowers are even edible. My favorite is the flower of the eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis). They are quite tasty. So, we can eat a variety of plant parts, and many of them are delicious.

Originally Answered: raspberry leaf tea etc?
Raspberry leaf tea does NOT bring on labour. It is used to condition the cervix for when the body is ready to go into labour. Its to help with the birth, to make it easier for the mother. A lot of midwifes recommend starting to use this tea at 32 weeks. Having one cup a day.. and as time gets closer you up the 1 cup to two, and in the last couple of days you have 3 cups of tea instead of 2. If her plan is to try natural induction methods I would definatly wait until 37 or 38 weeks. At 37 weeks your considered full term. None of the natural methods will work if her body is not ready.. so ill hope that at that point her body is in fact ready. Good luck.
