BONES…HELP THEM STAY STRONG

 

This post is about technique not about nutrients. It’s an suggestion for a practical way to use herbs thats are great for strengthening bones from the inside out.

This is an area that is new to me  and insha’allah I’ll share as I learn. Inspired by the plants on my window ledge and beginning to research parsley and its ability o tines bones from within I thought how can I make this amazing herb alhmdulilah(praise the Creator), part of my diet?

SMOOTHIES!!! or Soups.

Smoothies are better because everything is  RAW, all the vitamin and minerals stay intact

SOME VITAMINS ARE DESTROYED BY COOKING

You can buy fresh herbs quite cheaply in Arabic and Asian areas in large cities because they are so much a part of the diet.

£1 for 2 bunches of parsley , coriander/dunyia , mint, fenugreek/ methi or dill.

If you are a single person or small family sometimes herbs get wasted or end up in the recycling.

Some times washing and chopping herbs every day is a bit off putting but they have to be part of our daily diet.

So what to do?

Here’s an idea

Wash , drain and dry herbs, overnight preferably

You will need small sandwich bags, ribbon and scissors

Roughly chop herbs

parsley bag 1 (1)

Place a handful in bag, in bag should be added to other food items to make enough for 2 smoothies

parsley bag 1 (2)

Tie up bags with colour coded ribbon , P=pink P= parsley. D=dark blue D=danyia/coriander, you’ll work it out

parsley bag 1 (7)

Place bags inside another big place and place in freezer be mindful of what you have in there and use up ASAP and replace

Frozen herbs can be added to smoothies OR chopped more in frozen state and added last minutes to soups…enjoy
