Hello again. Today, I’m going to talk about a subject that has a lot of people closed-mouthed: halitosis. Bad breath has killed many a night of romance. It’s also cut short more than one business conversation.
That’s why I love parsley. This familiar herb is used as a garnish on many plates, but unfortunately, it usually remains uneaten. Few people realize that this green, curly herb is high in nutrients, has many health benefits, and freshens your breath, too.
Minced parsley lasts in the refrigerator for three days. To mince this fragrant herb, hold the bunch firmly by the stem end and chop the leaves. Continue to chop the leaves until they are minced. Alternatively, place the leaves in a food processor fitted with the S blade and pulse until they are minced.
Don’t forget to save your parsley stems! Along with broccoli stalks, and other odds and ends leftover from preparing meals and snacks, parsley can be juiced along with a base of celery, cucumbers, or carrots.
So re-calibrate your thinking about parsley; it’s not just for garnishing anymore. In fact, my Pear and Parsley Smoothie recipe makes a delicious breakfast or snack beverage and freshens your breath for an afternoon of business meetings or an evening of romance.
See you next time.
