Just add Cilantro - Heavy Metal removal

Foods can hurt and foods can heal.


There are many benefits to herbs and spices that go beyond taste.

Many of my recipes, especially Indian recipes (Mexican often calls for it as well) call for fresh cilantro at the end of cooking.

 Fresh cilantro has healing properties.

Cilantro is known for their ability to help move heavy metals from the body.

  1. I honestly don't think I've ever had Cilantro. I know I have never cooked with it, but I could have had it in a restaurant without realizing it.

  3. I've heard a lot of about how fresh herbs can heal. I use bottled ones in nearly everything I cook. Not sure if I've used Cilantro, I will have to look for it in the store. I love trying new ones especially if they help with my health.

  8. I recomend cilantro in cooking also. It is used very much in South-American cooking. The taste might be a little strong at the beginning and take some getting used to but it really is a great herb.
    A cilantro tip: cut it fresh with scallions and add to any soup of your liking. It is sure way to enhance the taste :)

  13. ugh! I am NOT a fan of Cilantro! It tastes like soap to me... rightfully so that it would clean up my body! Maybe I should sneak it in on myself every now and then.
