Spice it Up with Fresh Herbs

Spice up your cooking AND your health with fresh herbs.

Many herbs fall within the category of “superfoods” because they are rich in phytochemicals. Many phytochemicals are thought to reduce a person's risk of getting cancer and other illnesses. 

 This season, try growing your own herbs and spices—follow these simple tips:

  • Herbs can be grown indoors and outdoors; in planters and pots, placed on the  windowsill of the kitchen.
  • Mint, parsley, chives, and dill are some examples of herbs that can be easily grown indoors. While Basil, cilantro, thyme, rosemary, can easily be grown outdoors.
  • You can use fresh or dried (it's easy to store the excess in the freezer).
  • You can dry your herbs in a 90ºF oven (no higher) - this will allow their color and flavor to remain intact.
  • Fresh herbs are a simple and healthy way to spice up your food, while adding vital nutrients.
