And now, let’s start and see which ones are the best ones to begin with:

  • Cilantro

This herb is one of the perfect starter pack herb because it is low in calories, it is packed with flavor and it is quite simple to use. To top that off, the cilantro has been proven to be a great source of minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium.

But, because the cilantro is considered to be a very gentle herb, in order to maximize its flavor you will have to store it in its whole. This means that what you have to do is simply separate the leaves from the stem and that’s it, you’re good to go!

You are allowed to lightly chop up the leaves with a knife or simply break them apart just by using your hands. So, once you’ve chopped up your cilantro, take the fresh leaves and add them directly into your dishes, as a kind of a raw herb, or just toss them inside the dish just before you’re done cooking it.

What also compliments the cilantro nicely is the lime, which makes up for a great addition to your salsa or fresh guacamole, fish dishes, fresh salads, Mahi tacos, and even to your home made veggie dips.

  • Mint

Another tender herb which is easy to use is the mint, and it will fit in your dieting plan just perfectly – and we’re talking about much more than simply using it as an addition to your Mojitos! To add some mint into your dishes is as easy as adding some cilantro to them too.

You can always use the whole leaves of this herb, boil them in some water to get a fresh mint tea out of them, or if you want to mix things up, add them directly in your protein shakes.

  • Oregano

This is a herb that actually works in quite a few different ways with a variety of different foods. Because it can be used in its fresh as well as in its dry form, there are tons of options for you to incorporate it in your dishes.

You can take some dry oregano and sprinkle it all over your chicken or on your burgers to create an unexpected and a delightful seasoning, you can try using it as a pesto, as a nutritious yet classic way to go, for there are millions of ways to use it online, all you need to do is look them up!
