Thyme contains vitamins that help boost the immune system. It also helps to lower blood pressure and has been used to suppress coughing.
Chicken is full of great nutrients including calcium, folate, protein, potassium, and vitamins. These nutrients can boost the immune system, prevent anemia, and help to maintain heart health. Chicken is also very good for eye health, helps to lower blood pressure, and decreases the risk of stroke and heart attack.
Lemons are rich in vitamins, minerals, and nutritious plant compounds. They support heart health, digestive health, and help to prevent kidney stones. Lemons may also help prevent anemia and reduce the risk of cancer.
Food produced locally is more nutritious. This is because food contains the most nutrients around the time it is harvested. The longer food spends traveling, the less nutrition it contains. Less time traveling also means less exposure to harmful chemicals and less production of greenhouse gasses. What a tasteful way to decrease our carbon footprint!
