benefits of parsley

It’s a garnish, right?  Parsley is actually an excellent of vitamin K and vitamin C as well as a good source of vitamin A, folate and iron, too. The herb has anti-inflammatory properties. Eaten daily could help with joint pain. Parsley tea relaxes stiff muscles and encourages digestion. It’s high in iron so if you’re anemic this should be in your diet. A couple tablespoons provides two percent of your daily iron.

How to eat more parsley? Mix it into pesto, salsas and salads. Add it to your side dish of rice or potatoes. Try it in lasagna, casseroles or soup. Of course, a parsley garnish goes with any meal.
