Chicken Stock Story & Recipe

Chicken stock, like any meat stock, is rich in minerals, gelatin, and collagen. This elixir keeps bones and teeth strong, joints supple, and hair soft. I have experience with the last one as my hair used to be dry with grey coming …. I started drinking stock and within weeks, my hair softened with much less grey; likely the collagen had a play in that.

Parsley Power: Green Vegetable Smoothie 💚

I love watching a person when I tell them what I put in my smoothies. This is good stuff! Had I not tried it, I’d have stuck my nose up at the idea of adding parsley, lettuce, or zucchini for that matter. I’m telling you the blend works and tastes good too. 

Parsley is an herb rich in vitamin A, vitamin K, folate, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, antioxidants, and essential oil. Health benefits include inhibiting cancer, detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, immune booster, building bone, and removing gallstones (contains oxalic acid/kidney cleanser). Traditionally, parsley has been used to remedy anemia, bad breath, and menstrual pain.
