Parsely gets most of its attention as a garnish…
Yes, it can make any dish look photo shoot ready...but its beauty is so much more than skin deep!
1/2 a cup has more health benefits than you could ever imagine:
Along with all these vitamins and mineral parsley also contains two components for optimal health - volatile oils which keep healthy cells healthy and inhibit tumour formation and flavonoids which act as antioxidants.
I love to add half a cup to my salad - it adds a delicious flavor with the lettuces. I also like to mix it in with quinoa, lentil and rice dishes - especially since it has lots of vitamin c which helps you better absorb iron rich foods. Its also really good in your green smoothie or in soup. It is easy to grow - plant some in your garden or even in a little pot in your kitchen so you always have it available.
