Hello, Vibrant Reader!
Let's use more parsley...
Parsley (Petroselinum crispum), the world's most popular culinary herb is also known as rock celery and belongs to the Umbelliferae family of plants. Parsley is one of the world's seven most potent disease-fighting spices including Ginger, Oregano, Cinnamon, Turmeric, Sage, and Red Chili Peppers. Parsley grows in most climates and is readily available throughout the year. It is a biennial plant, meaning it produces seeds during its second year of production and will reseed itself if you let it.
While parsley is a wonderfully nutritious and healing food, it is often under-appreciated. Most people do not realize that this vegetable has more uses than just being a decorative garnish that accompanies restaurant meals.
With this said, I hope all of you will appreciate the spray of parsley demurely placed on your plate at dinner. And, go out and buy yourself some parsley plants, they are easily grown. They will not do to well in the heat of the summer, but will reseed and come back full swing, more hearty with each passing year. They make lovely bouquets during the year combined with other herbs picked from the garden.
I have for years create herb bouquets for our home, lovingly placed in the office, bedside or wherever else suits me. It truly is the simpler things in life that bring us the most joy.
Pineapple Sage is our newest herb garden addition for the year. It is divine and smells... yes, you guessed it, just like pineapple!
I am once again planning a journey to the Optimum Health Institute in Quemado, California. Living the raw food lifestyle continues to be an interest, and there really is no better place to acclimate to this lifestyle then at OHI. I am applying for the 3-month internship, hoping to begin my journey in early fall. Needless to say, this is a big commitment, and if accepted, I will throw myself into with heart and soul.
It is simply an investment in one's health and the opportunity to be in service to the numbers of attendees over the course of the three months. Personally, I hope for the opportunity to teach the daily yoga... and have first hand experience in the raw food kitchen, bringing back home a wealth of experience to share with each of you. Raw is not boring--it is simply different and can be just as captivating as the finest French meal on the Boulevard de Champs Elysees.
May your summer continue to be vibrant, dreams realized and joyous adventure on the menu daily.
Until next week...
In vibrant health,
