Health Tips:

Basil is an excellent source of vitamin K, manganese, iron, vitamin A, and vitamin C.

Sun Dried Tomatoes  provide vitamins C and K, iron, and lycopene, an antioxidant associated with lower risk of certain cancers.

Spelt, with its mild, nutty flavor, is a popular alternative to wheat. It also provides several essential nutrients, such as iron, magnesium, and zinc.
