Many people equate health food with “Yuck!”.

Using the right herbs can make any dish not only taste better, but be healthier for you as well.


This video gives you some ideas on how to use herbs to add flavor, color and aroma to your food.

We also have a list of herbs and suggested uses below.

Make Your Food Taste Better and Be Healthier

Basil

Goes great in sandwiches. Especially along with a ripe organic tomato slice. Try rice bread for a gluten free alternative.

Mints




There are a variety of different mints, chocolate mint, pineapple mint, orange mint, lime mint and many more. Top your salad, or make a nice cup of tea.

Chives

The flowers are edible as well as the greens. The flowers have a  good garlic flavor and  can be used instead of or alongside regular garlic.

The “Garlic Chive” is super garlicy.

Cilantro

Has been used by some herbalists to reduce heavy metals in the body, like mercury. Commonly used in salsa, add it to salads, soups or anywhere you can add it in. Experiment a little with this great herb. One of my personal favorites.

Parsley

A popular garnish, be sure to eat it up! Great for freshening the breath. Also goes good in smoothies.

Borage Flowers

Add a beautiful blue color to any dish
