I try not to take traditional medicine unless it’s absolutely necessary, as in: I’m on my deathbed, gasping for breath. (And my boyfriend teases me that even if I were on my death bed, I’d ask for a tincture of apple cider vinegar and aloe. But I digress.) Fortunately, I get by pretty well on my own between my healthy habits and knowledge of herbs—like oil of oregano. Boy do I love that stuff when you’re feeling under the weather!
Only 38 days remain until summer officially begins (not that I’m counting). Have you started your garden yet? No matter where you live, you can grow a garden. Most herbs (and some veggies) require little more than a container, a sunny ledge, a sprinkling of water and a little bit of attention. They’re easy to start from seeds, and when it’s eventually time to harvest, you’ll have aromatic, delicious and nutritious ingredients to cook with—no trip to the supermarket required! Read more →
Whether fresh from the herb garden or dried in the jar, herbs and spices added to prepared meals provide both flavor and an extra sprinkling of antioxidants, minerals or vitamins. No food is off-limits. Sandwiches, snacks and smoothies all qualify for delicious herbal additions.
The alfredo-like sauce on this pasta is made with whole milk instead of heavy cream, giving you the same flavor and texture, but not all the unwanted fat and calories. The trick is to start with a simple roux made from butter and flour, then to slowly stir in milk for a thicker consistency. Toss in some diced eggplant and fresh oregano, and you’ve got a delicious and filling vegetarian meal.
When you think “oregano,” you probably think “pizza!” (The same thing happens when you smell it, too.)
But you can do so much more with this pungent herb than sprinkle it in on slice of greasy cheese & pepperoni pie. Find out more about this multi-purpose product:
