Learn how to keep your cilantro fresh for up to two weeks. This easy to follow 3-step-method is all you need.

According to Organic Facts, many people don’t know that coriander (cilantro) is packed with potential health benefits, that most people completely miss when they toss this garnish into the garbage after eating their meal.

Properties of Cilantro

  • It has eleven components of essential oils,
  • Six types of acids (including ascorbic acid, better known as vitamin-C),
  • Minerals and
  • Vitamins, each having some beneficial properties.


Given my love for cilantro and all its amazing properties, you can understand my desire to preserve it when I don’t use it all.  After spending countless hours on the net, I finally found a method that works wonders!

You Will Need Three Items!

  • An empty container
  • Water
  • A plastic bag

Three Simple Steps

  • First, you want to fill your jar with water. A mason jar or an old glass bottle should work. Add about 1 cup of distilled cold water, or you can use tap water too.
  • Then I place my cilantro in the bottle and cover it with a plastic bag to retain the moisture.
  • I take my covered bottle and put in in the fridge! That’s it!

As you can see, this is also an excellent way to bring your herbs back to life! Next time your cilantro looks a little lifeless, simply follow the steps listed above and watch it flourish!

I do not know the scientific reason why this works, but I know that I use the same method to preserve my mint leaves, my parsley and it also works great.

Let me know how you keep your cilantro and other herbs!

Learn How To Make Amazing Baked Plantain Chips


I love snacks, and I love plantains! I can eat plantains all day long. Traditionally in the Garifuna culture plantains are eaten fried or boiled in a traditional dish called Machuca. However, since transitioning to a healthier lifestyle, I prefer mine baked!

Are you looking for a healthy recipe for plantains? This excellent meal prep friendly recipe will teach you how to make crunchy plantains without the extra fat.

Today I am very excited to combine my love for snacks and plantains and share a simple recipe that is both healthy and delicious!

For this recipe, you will need plantains (the amount varies, I suggest at least 2 or 3). Your favorite seasoning, here I am using one from Flavor God. You will also need a little bit of oil; my preference is coconut oil. If you love spicy food, I recommend crushed red peppers!

Before you start, turn on your oven at 350 degrees. Once you peel your plantains, cut them into 1/2 inch slices, then mix all your ingredients in a bowl. Place your chips on a baking sheet and put them in the over!

Baked Plantain Chips

  • 3 Sweet/yellow plantains
  • 2 tsps Crushed red peppers
  • 2 tbsps Coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp Seasonings
  1. Pre-heat the over to 350 degrees

  2. Cut your plantain vertically in pieces that are about 1/2 an inch wide and place them in a bowl  

  3. Add two teaspoons of coconut oil

  4. Season to taste with your seasoning and crushed red peppers (I love spicy food, you do not have to use those).  

  5. Mix your ingredients in a bowl!  

  6. Place your plantains in the over and let them cook for 20 minutes, then turn them around and let them cook for another 10 – 15 minutes.
