Let's talk about herbs

January 13, 2018

With the Spring Challenge (click here to find out more information) coming up, I wanted to take a moment to talk about herbs and how you can use them to immediately add flavor and spice to any dish that may otherwise be a little bland. The thing is, eating clean doesn’t have to mean eating food without flavor. In fact, if you play around with herbs it is quite the opposite andyou get a few extra health benefits from a lot of different herbs.
