Parsley also contains chlorophyll which boosts oxygen levels in your blood. This helps to energise your body and promote radiant skin, allowing you to feel fresh and revitalised!
Available fresh or dried, beauty food parsley can be added to soups, salads, baked dishes or simply to add colour! When cooking, add it towards the end to retain its gorgeous colour, taste and nutrients. Flat leaf parsley is often preferred when cooking as it holds its flavour and colour better.
Choose parsley which is dark green in colour, looks fresh and crisp and has firm stems. Store it in the refrigerator or grow your own! Keep fresh grown parsley in a moist, well drained pot or in the garden and make sure it receives full sun to thrive!
