I Forgot the Parsley

This morning I went into the kitchen to make a green smoothie for breakfast.  I tossed the following ingredients into the blender:

1 cup kale or spinach

1/2 cup banana

1/2 chopped apple

1/2 cup blueberries ( frozen or fresh)

3 tbsps frozen orange juice

5  walnut halves

about 2 cups water

While sipping this wonder of nature, my tastebuds told me something was missing.  The parsley! Out to the garden I went with my orange tabby George right alongside me.  The parsley patch was waiting for our arrival.  In no time 3 healthy stems of parsley were pulsing along with the rest of my morning smoothie.  As I enjoyed the delicious blend of fruit and vegetables I knew my energy would be strong as well as calm and focused throughout the morning.

Parsley is one of my favorite herbs.  It is nutrient dense, full of vitamins A and C along with calcium, magnesium, and iron.  Parsley is also a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine.  Munching on parsley every day may provide relief from allergies, asthma, and hives.  It is also a healthy herb for vision and digestion.

Most of all I appreciate parsley for its role as a cleanser.  This herb is high in chlorophyll and helps to detoxify waste from our bodies.  I have read that the avg American is walking around with up to 200 chemicals and 21 pesticides that weren’t in our bodies 100 years ago.  Eating parsley is a simple but powerful way to keep our bodies clean.  If you do not have parsley growing in your garden or in a pot, plant some!

What’s your favorite smoothie herb?
