Herbs are one of nature’s greatest medicines, and incorporating them into your meals is one of the fastest ways to upgrade your health routine! All herbs contain an array of healing properties and work to support cleansing and detoxification while simultaneously boosting immunity. Basic ones – like basil, parsley and cilantro – all work to reduce inflammation, support liver function and aid in the clearance of heavy metals from the body.

Not only are these plants deeply restorative, but they also add texture, flavor and an element of beauty to every meal. For an instant boost of nutrition, incorporate a variety of herbs into your juices, smoothies, soups, salads and grain dishes daily. My favorite way to incorporate them is to add them to salads or grain dishes, but they are also a lovely addition to a fresh juice, adding depth, complexity and flavor.

Adding a variety of herbs to our daily meals makes for deeply nourishing, healing and satisfying cuisine. Check out a few ways to eat more, and how your body is benefiting from each today on The Chalkboard Mag
