Ingredient Spotlight: Parsley

Parsley is more than just a garnish. It's filled with health benefits and it's a great way to freshen up any dish. Parsley is high in vitamin K, vitamin C and flavanoids. It's said that the flavanoids actually function as antioxidants, as well. Parsley is also a good source of folic acid and vitamin B 12, which are essential for a healthy heart; these nutrients help control your blood pressure. So stop using parsley for merely a touch of green on your plate, and add it into your dishes as a main ingredient. Going further than that, add it to your juices and even consider making parsley tea!
