Parsley is one of many healthy herbs that can be used in a multitude of ways!! Parsley originated from southern Europe around the Mediterranean Sea. Maybe that’s why it goes so well with garlic? ūüėȬ†Parsley contains a really impressive amount of vitamin K (over 500% of daily recommended value), and also contains¬†a good amount of vitamin C and A.¬†Parsley has a mild detoxing effect on the body and is therefore a good ingredient to add in green juices to help detox the body.¬†Here are my favorite ways of using parsley:

Salads & Green Drinks: Add parsley to salads, green drinks, or vegetable juices.

Soups: Parsley can be added to soups, such as tomato soup or chicken broth soup, before serving for added flavor and aroma.

Garnish: Fresh parsley is simple to use as a garnish on top of food, to make a dish look a bit extra nice.

What to Do with Eggplant – Real Food Basics

Eggplant

Eggplant, or aubergine as it’s called in most of the world, is one of few fruits that you should never eat raw (yes it’s actually a fruit, not a vegetable!). Because of it’s unique¬†skin, eggplant is one produce that is not as important to buy organic.

Eggplant is often called “poor man’s meat” because when cooked well it has a little¬†similar taste to meat. My favorite meat & eggplant combination is ground¬†meat and cubed eggplant, fried together with chopped onion¬†in coconut oil.¬†Add some salt, pepper and a bit of¬†cinnamon (sounds weird but it’s really good!). You can also add some cayenne pepper. Serve this dish together with cauliflower rice or add some cooked¬†beans and eat it with a spoon. The most important thing i that you try eggplant with ground meat, because it’s really good!! ūüôā

What to Do with Coconut – Real Food Basics

Coconut

Coconuts are by far one of my favorite foods!! So healthy, so good, and so filling. I love that you can use every part of the coconut, both the flesh as coconut chips or grated coconut, coconut butter (ground up shredded coconut), coconut flour (ground from dried, defatted coconut meat), coconut water, and coconut milk.

You can use coconut for both breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and dessert. Coconut oil is a healthy cooking fat as it’s quite heat stable and doesn’t contain any omega-6 fatty acids that promote inflammation in the body. Coconut milk is easy to use in smoothies and¬†in both¬†cooking and baking, and coconut flour can be used to make gluten free bread and¬†desserts.

The only coconut product I personally don’t use is coconut sugar, for many reasons. First of all¬†I have chosen to avoid all added sugar, even¬†natural added sugars such as cane sugar, honey, agave, coconut sugar, etc. And second of all, I love coconuts too much to be able to be OK with coconut sugar. What do I mean with that? Well, when you make coconut sugar, you take the nectar from the coconut palm tree, and there then won’t be any coconuts grown on the tree. I don’t want to support using a sugar that hinders valuable food from being made! Coconut palm trees that are used for making coconut sugar later also have a hard time starting to grow coconuts again, which is another reason¬†why I wouldn’t want to use coconut sugar even if it were healthy. But “thankfully” coconut sugar is still sugar, just not as processed as white table sugar, so for me it’s an easy decision to just avoid coconut sugar all together.

Red Onions

Red onions are my favorite onion during springtime. They have a bit more gentle taste than yellow onions and are therefore not as strong when eaten raw. I love to add red onions to all kinds of salads, as well as also sauteing them or adding them to soups, just like yellow onions.

Red onions contain a lot of antioxidants and nutrients, so I make sure to use onions as often as possible! Sometimes raw, sometimes cooked.
