Get More Use out of Fresh Herbs

Mr (4-year old son): “Are you cutting those leaves and eating it????”

Me: “Yes!”

Mr: “I want to eat some leaves”


I’m a big fan of growing fresh herbs in or outside of your house. I’m writing about this topic again because the grocery stores have made it just too easy! Most stores are now selling “live” herbs. I’m sure you’ve seen these little bundles that are still in the soil. There’s no need to waste these plants. Simply get a small pot and a bag of soil and keep them going. Even if you don’t have a green thumb you can at least keep them alive for a month or so which means you get a lot more use out of them. Once you get the hang of it you can keep them alive much longer. 

I always have herbs growing in my windowsill and end up using them daily to add flavor to just about anything. Not to mention nutritional value. These small plants are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and also contain many anti-inflammatory and anti-bacteria benefits. When you have them at your finger tips it’s so easy to add important nutrients and flavor to your meals. Here’s some of my favorite uses:

Don’t waste your money on one use- all you need is the live plant, a pot, soil and a sunny window. They make great houseplants!
