My Mother always used parsley for garnishing meat or vegetable platters. She never failed to make a production out of eating it and saying that it was good for the body. Well, turns out, she knew what she was talking about.
I have recently been making a vegetable/protein drink every morning instead of a fruit drink. I have been adding parsley and I can really taste the clean earthiness of it. So I have done a little research.
First and foremost, parsley helps to purify the blood. It contains many anti-oxidant nutrients. It is said to improve cardiovascular health and arthritis. One google search gave me the idea of making my own parsley water.
