Notes

Foodie Fun Fact: Thyme is a very aromatic herb commonly used for both cooking and in natural medicines. Herbalists use thyme for gastrointestinal ailments, bronchial issues, the common cold and whooping cough. It may be tempting to eliminate herbs or spices when you see them in recipes, but remember, besides adding flavor many of these ingredients hold additional health benefits that your body needs.
