What’s one superfood that is so “in” right now? Ginger! But really, it has been a popular health remedy, detoxer, and flavorful addition to many recipes for thousands of years. This isn’t surprising, given that ginger is known to treat nausea and indigestion, help relieve joint pain, and may boost weight loss, among countless other benefits.
One of my favorite, versatile, refreshing things to add to recipes is basil. Sure, you can buy fresh basil at the grocery store, but you either buy too much and it goes bad, or you buy too little and end up needing more, spending $$$ in the process. Wouldn’t it be easier to just grow your own and be able to walk over to your basil plant, snip off some leaves, and add them straight to whatever you’re making? No need to go to the grocery store! Whether a beginner or novice gardener, growing your own basil year-round is possible, and we’ll teach you how with this Basil 101!
