I would love to highlight some super good nutrition stuff about this very well known herb.
What are the nutritional benefits of parsley?
Parsley contais the following key nutrients:
1) Vitamin K
It’s main role is around blood clotting. Also involved in making bone protein
Beta-carotene has an antioxidant role in our body and can also be converted to Vitamin A (best known role is for our eye health. Vitamin A is also important for our immune system and for growth and development)
3) Vitamin C
Again, this helps our immune system. Also great for skin repair and wound healing (p.s. both vitamin A and vitamin C are also anti-oxidants!)
Iron is important for oxygen transport in our body
Folate helps make healthy red blood cells and is very important for fetal growth and development
How to cook with parsley?
Parsley would have to be one of the most commonly used and easy to grow herbs. It’s very versatile and can be used in:
- In Dips
- As a garnish with pretty much everything
Enjoy and happy cooking
