Fresh herbs are a fantastic way to add tons of flavor to a meal while adding health benefits as well. The flavors and spices I cook with can certainly become a bit ho-hum and boring.

It’s an ingredient people take for granted as it exists on a grocery store shelf. Mayo can be a real, whole food. Its simple to make and only …
