On your Consistent health issues… Have you really tried herbs?

When I was younger, I hated green leaves. I hated seeing them in my meals. It was like a norm to see these tiny green leaves in almost all the meals. If it wasn’t prepared together with the food, it was prepared differently and added to the food. Well as kids, there wasn’t much choice then, it was either eat or stay hungry.

Fast forward to the present, I now find myself eager to see green leaves in my meals, sometimes even preferring them half-done, You know why? Well, read on…

As we grow up, we keep learning and unlearning things. I found out that eating these leaves wasn’t a form of punishment from our parents but a huge blessing to our health. Vegetables have a lot of benefits in our daily lives. Some species can have not less than five benefits of which there could be more yet undiscovered.
