Fresh Herbs Help Weight Loss Diet
Fresh herbs contain more antioxidants – substances that fight cancer and heart disease – than some fruit and vegetables.
Experts at the American Department of Agriculture have found that fresh herbs contain large amounts of antioxidants like vitamin C, beta-carotene and vitamin A. A tablespoon of oregano has as many antioxidants as an apple.
Herbs are also helpful for weight loss. Fat-free and calorie-free, they make excellent substitutes for higher fat flavorings like butter and cream.
You don’t need a garden or greenhouse to grow herbs. Buy them in your supermarket!
For healthy sustained weight loss, choose a diet that follows the Food Pyramid Guidelines and offers diet support, exercise advice and weight loss motivation.
