I read this in Ladies’ Home Journal while waiting to see my oncologist last week:
Oregano, rosemary, thyme, bay leaves, basil, anise, garlic and pepper not only add Mediterranean flavor to your cooking, they also contain healthy antiocidants.
“Just half a teaspoon of dried oregano has as much antiocidants as 3 cups of spinach,” says dietician Wendy Basilian, Dr.P.H.,R.D.
The magazine goes on to recommend “using these herbs and spices liberally, to taste, at every meal.”
The oregano thing really surprised me! I already pile it on my pizza and spaghetti. A little more can’t hurt!
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
