Eating healthier with herbs

Close-up of fresh parsley leavesDid you know that pound for pound, parsley has more than 10 times the vitamin A, 8 times the iron, and more calcium and vitamin C than raw broccoli?  It even beats raw spinach for most of these same nutrients.  Many fresh, dried, or ground herbs and spices can add vitamins and minerals to your diet and help you eat less sodium.  Use more herbs and spices instead of salt – not just for great flavor, but for good nutrition, too!  Try one new herb every few months, or plant some in a little window pot!
