Heart Healthy: Fresh Herbs

Fresh herbs make many other foods heart-healthy when they replace salt, fat, and cholesterol. These flavor powerhouses, along with nuts, berries — even coffee — form a global approach to heart-wise eating.

Herbs can also be grown fairly easily in small pots either outside or in a window sill. Having them handy like that will make you more likely to use them, and can save you quite a bit of money as opposed to buying already dried spices at the grocery store.

Next time you are in a discount store, dollar store or garden department check and see what seed packets are available in your area. You will find that growing them yourself is not only super easy (even without a green thumb), but also makes your food taste incredible.

Fact: Rosemary, sage, oregano, and thyme contain antioxidants.
