A while back, I read this in Ladies’ Home Journal while waiting to see my medical oncologist:
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.”
Not convinced? Read a an article about oregano I ran last April here on HWC:
I years before that, I wrote this about this amazing and under-appreciated herb:
“The oregano thing really surprised me! I already pile it on my pizza and spaghetti. A little more can’t hurt!”
Still great advice! Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
