Quick Tip: Better Breath

Next time you’re out to eat, you might want to think twice about leaving that parsley on your plate. It’s not just a pointless garnish, eating it following a meal is actually the perfect way to freshen your breath sans a toothbrush. Thanks to parsley’s high chlorophyll content is is known to be a great natural cure for bad breath. The chlorophyll it contains is detoxifying, antibacterial, and deodorizing – quite the combination!

We had some friends over this weekend and I oddly offered them a glass of water and few sprigs of fresh parsley. I was just being silly, but they both ate all of the sprigs and even seemed to enjoy it to some degree. I think it definitely made their brief visit more memorable and now they’re in on this natural remedy, as are you!
