Week of August 15th

A toast to the magical cilantro. Cut the bottoms off like a fresh bouquet of flowers and stick it in a glass of water on your counter top. This will help it stay fresh longer and help remind you to use it. Let’s look at the top 8 benefits of this powerful and medicinal herb:
Rids the Body of Heavy Metals.
Protects Against Oxidative Stress.
Lowers Anxiety and Improves Sleep.
Lowers Blood Sugar Levels.
Protects Against Cardiovascular Disease.
Prevents Urinary Tract Infections.
Settles Digestive Upset.
Protects Against Food Poisoning.

Search for a cilantro dressing recipe on Google that sounds good to you. This way you can literally use a full bunch of cilantro at once and reap the benefits on something as simple as a salad.

Week of August 8th

When you eat broccoli, do you often find yourself throwing the stems away? Let’s stop doing that 🙂 Don’t let the crowns have all the glory. You’ll want to start by determining just how tough their exteriors are, peeling them off if they’ve grown too wooden with time. Most of the time, I prefer to eat the broccoli stems raw, either tossed into a salad or arranged on a plate and drizzled with some olive oil and a sprinkling of flaky sea salt. They don’t need much else. It makes for a fun little predinner snack for the cook—just a treat, nothing that will ruin your appetite.
