It’s no secret that one of our main goals is to boost our client’s nutrition by helping them up their game in the veggie department. But did you know that fresh herbs can be included in this venture? That’s because in addition to adding flavor to our dishes, herbs contain unique anti-oxidants, essential oils, vitamins, phyto-sterols and many other nutritive substances which help equip our body to fight against germs and toxins and boost our immunity.
You can find fresh herbs at most supermarkets, but if you are so inclined it can be fun (and economical) to set up a few pots of herbs in your kitchen or back porch. Some of our favorites include rosemary, dill, cilantro, mint, chives, basil, thyme, parsley and sage.
