That little green plant on your plate isn’t just for decoration, it’s health food. Parsley! Parsley is a blood purifier and it’s rich green color tells you that it’s high in chlorophyll which makes it a good breath freshener after your meal. Besides, it’s loaded with nutrients including Vitamin A, iron, copper and manganese . A tea made from dried parsley is a good diuretic and is one of the ingredients in my Kidney Tea. It is a biennial plant growing the first year, then growing even bigger and setting seed the second year, then dieing. You see 2 kinds of fresh parsley in the grocery store. Flat leaf Italian parsley and dark green curled parsley. The Italian parsley has a milder flavor than the curled–but both are good and would love to be in your garden.
