I heard so many times:”Parsley is a miracle! It helps you drop the pounds. ”
Whaaat? Parsley suppose to help you drop the pounds? Is that true?
I want to believe in miracle and one of my favorite quote is “Always believe that something wonderful will happen”.
So, I went to the local organic store and as soon as my eyes caught him I whisper:
“Hello my Italian lover known to the world as the Italian parsley.I am going to test you and drink you because I want to lose 5 lbs.”
So, I paid for my lover (only $2.99) and I brought him to my home. Soon I will be ready for my vicious testing….
On a serious note are there any benefits of parsley other than to lose a few pounds ?
Parsley contains high amounts of potassium and vitamin A, calcium, vitamin C and phosphorus.
It is an excellent ally in the fight against urinary problems, kidney disease, a strong diuretic and very rich source of cancer-fighting antioxidants.
So spending $2.99 was well wort it. Don’t you think?
My recipe is the following:
Boil 4 cups of water.(1L)
Add 5 TBSP parsley
Let steep for 20 min.
You can drink with chopped parsley or strain the tea.
You can drink it in any day except late at night (you don’t want to go at night to urinate)
Do not drink more than a 4 cups per day.

Love and hugs from me and my Italian Parsley Lover!
