Healthy RD Challenge: Day 2
Today, I worked on my garden, which is my #HealthyRD Day 2 healthy choice. My grandfather has a large garden . . . or a small farm depending on your viewpoint. I love the idea of growing things, but do not love the idea of meeting snakes in the garden. I do live in the South you know. I thought I would follow in my grandfather's footsteps with very small baby steps.
I love cooking with herbs and spices. Adding herbs to your recipes is a great way to add flavor without adding fat or sodium. If you are watching your dietary sodium or fat intake, try adding herbs to add flavor without adding fat or salt.
I started growing some herbs around Valentine's Day and Easter. I keep them indoors in a sunny spot because it still cold outside. I currently have basil, rosemary, sage, and mint. Since I recently started growing herbs, I would greatly appreciate any tips you have to keep herbs alive. Please comment on the blog, tag me on Instagram, or tweet me, @RDtipoftheday, with tips to keep my herb garden alive and healthy.
