What to Do with Parsley – Real Food Basics


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? ;) 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, 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!! :)
