EAT MORE HERBS TARANAKI - the real health supplement! / by Carl Freeman

I felt inspired this morning to write a little blog encouraging our customers to eat more herbs.

I think we should aim to start replacing some of our lettuce consumption with bulky herb salads and dressings. Herbs are really good for you, all that flavour come from the fact that the plants have a deep root systems that reaches down and draws on more diverse and rich soil nutrients. Most herbs are perennial (meaning they just keep growing back) which is good for the soil and planet as there is less bare soil between crops.

Here are a couple of my favourite parsley recipes chimichurri and tabbouleh.
