  • Finding hidden treasures

  • Growing and cooking with herbs

     

    We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we tend to make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium. Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease. Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.

    Herbs are also some of the easiest things to grow. The simplest way to start an herb garden is to buy plants and transfer them to a window box.
