This post and video was so much fun to put together! Back in April, Vienna and I started growing sprouts from seeds and it was a joyous distraction from the uncertainly of this pandemic. This inspired me to start a full-on urban garden on my balcony with tons of herbs, veggies and other non-edible plants!
This has been such a fun project with Vienna. Every single day we water our herbs because we get full sun on our balcony all day long. It's fun to get our hands dirty too and amazing for our microbiome! Plus it's a wonderful way to connect with each other (I love teaching Vienna about it) and nature!
We've been able to take our salad game to a whole new joyous level because we've been adding at least three different herbs in each salad we make.
Adding herbs to your meals is an incredible way to increase the nutritional value of your meal. Herbs are exceptionally high in antioxidants which protect your cells from damage.
In my video I talk about my favourite 6 herbs I'm using all the time. Before we get to it, an honorable mention goes to dill, I just didn't get any planted in my garden which is why it's not featured in this video but equally delicious and nourishing.
Here are some yummy recipes to enjoy fresh herbs in:
Oregano aka "Mountain Joy"
One of the main ingredients in "Italian seasoning" spice mix making it idea to go with pizza or pasta!
This herb goes amazingly well in any chicken dish and it's delightful in scrambled eggs
The most overlooked herb! Parsley bring so much nutrition and joy to all dishes. Just talking about it here makes me think I need a tabbuleh recipe here.
