Why do I think it’s thyme for Herbs in your life?  

Well, it’s undeniable they are:

  • The easiest to grow which is great for beginner gardeners.
  • Add tremendous flavor to our meals (no need for fake processed flavorings that disrupt our gut and have addictive properties).
  • Health benefits and plant power are undeniable.

Depending on where you live.  I reside in Zone 5b.  There are plenty of herbs I can grow in Wisconsin.  You can grow others if you are equipped to bring them inside or have a greenhouse.  But I want to give you easy options for starting your herb garden. The goal is to start growing and connecting to our food deeper and experience all the benefits that go along with it.

If you are not in a position to start a herb garden, you can still head to the local farmer’s market and add them to your meals. 

Let’s start with all the health perks we get from adding herbs into our life and learn how they benefit us.

We have all heard about the importance of GUT health. Each of these Herbs offers different support in the digestion process. We underestimate the power of plants + food is medicine.

Peppermint Tea is a favorite, especially in the winter for me. It’s my go-to when I experience certain digestion issues.

In the summer months, I chop lemon balm and sprinkle it on my fruit salad or make a pitcher of cold brew tea. Check out all the digestion supporting options below you can easily grow.
