I love fresh spinach from the farms, but the packaged baby spinach containers are so convenient. They last awhile and I re-use the containers. There great for salads. I use spinach a lot. If I don’t put them into salads, soups, or omelets, I’m putting them into my shakes. What do you use spinach for?
My salad today was a parsley salad. It’s actual recipe name is: Kiwi, cucumber and avocado tabbouleh
It’s from my friend Galya Denzel. The recipe link is here:
I will also include a copy of the recipe below.
I love Galya and have many recipes of hers that I make frequently. I have made this recipe at least 4 times since reading about it. I can’t believe the health benefits of Parsley. I would never of thought!!! I like how I can switch between using fresh lemon juice, fresh lime juice or both. The cucumbers, kiwi, parsley and a few other ingredients are just so yummy together. As Galya mentions: “… brings significant amounts of vitamin K, vitamin C, iron and folate – all of which we need to usually supplement with”
Floyd Maxwell sums it up: “Parsley, An Unsung Hero”. This article of his has some many great explanations about some of the benefits of parsley. For example – he states…”As much protein per bunch as a couple of eggs”.
Click here for article from Floyd Maxwell. It’s short and very sweet. At the end of the article, there is a recipe for parsley pie that I would love to try very soon. I like to rotate my healthy recipes so I don’t get bored. It would be great to have at least 2 yummy recipes with one of the main ingredients being parsley. Just make sure you use flat leaf parsley. I tried using the curly kind and I didn’t like it.
