As we pursued the aisles at Trader Joe’s, we couldn’t help but notice their amazing selection of fresh, organic herbs! These beauties ring in at $1.99 (roughly the same price as their plastic counterparts), and make the perfect accessory to your kitchen windowsill or patio. Short on flavor inspiration? Place a sprig of rosemary on a salmon fillet and roast in parchment paper with a squeeze of lemon for a flavorful, heart-healthy protein, or add fresh basil to your mixed greens for a subtle, sweet taste of summer. Not only do we love fresh herbs for their flavor-boosting powers, but caring for these potted beauties help foster our mind-body connection with our food. The next time you’re settling into your meal prep routine, or cooking dinner, take a mindful moment. Gently rub a sprig of rosemary (or other fresh herb) between your fingers. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and inhale the woody aroma of the rosemary. If desired, think of one thing, person, event, song, or memory you are grateful for. We’re making plant care, self care.
