Basil has many health benefits, one of which is to clear skin blemishes because of it’s anti-bacterial properties. It also has a wonderful nutritional profile providing vitamins: A, K, magnesium and more. It is an ancient herb, that’s been around for centuries and grows all over the world. There are over 60 varieties of basil.
It stays freshest in the refrigerator wrapped in a damp paper towel. I also cut it and put in a glass filled with water. It will last for days that way. We grow our own sweet basil, so we can cut it as we need it in various recipes. We add basil to our sauce, pesto, shakes, and even our omelettes with some feta cheese. You feta believe it’s good.
Sometimes you have to shake it up a bit! Try this shake combination of Basil & Raspberry for breakfast one day. Basil & Raspberry shake It’s surprisingly delicious. Also, make my Pesto Sauce and add it to your pasta, salmon, sandwiches and more.
Basil is one “sweet” herb!
