New Recipe - Green Flourishing Summer Salad


What makes our healthy eating life in summer easy is my husband´s garden. We are both green-addicted, particularly to fresh herbs. The best side effect: nothing is more healthy for human beings than eating green plants because of the chlorophyll contained in it. And do you know why? The chlorophyll molecule is almost similar to the blood (=hemoglobin) molecule. As blood is needed for almost every process in the body, it is very helpful to support building the precious liquid.
