The Tiny Ingredients That Make Any Dish More Delicious

We're talking about: Herbs like chives, thyme, rosemary, basil and parsley
Why you should eat more of them: Herbs give meals a burst of flavor and antioxidants. If you prefer fresh over dried, store them in the refrigerator, says Maria Elena Rodriguez RD, CDN, CDE, a dietitian and manager of the Diabetes Alliance at Mount Sinai Medical Center, in New York. It'll help keep them fresh and full of nutrients longer.
Keep this in mind too: Rodriguez recommends wrapping them loosely in plastic and storing them on one of the shelves on the door—it gets slightly warmer there than other spots in the refrigerator, so there's less chance they'll freeze.
