As the fabulously fit ladies from Boutique Fitness have deemed it, Powerful Parsley is more than just garnish for your plate.

Not just a garnish, parsley is easily one of the most under-rated foods in the kitchen. It is in the celery family and it’s name literally means ‘rock celery’. Parsley was used medicinally by the ancient Greeks before it became the world’s most popular herb. It is alkalizing in our bodies, a powerful detoxifier and is considered a mild diuretic.
