About the Recipe

This month at Healthoholics we are focussed on Health Freedom!

If you haven’t seen it yet, we encourage you to check out our latest blog post on Why The History of NHP (Natural Health Product) Regulations Matter TODAY for more info!

This week’s recipe was inspired by the NHPPA, a federal non-profit who are doing important work to protect the health freedom of all Canadians.

NHPPA is currently running a t-shirt fundraising campaign to directly support their campaign initiative to get their President, constitutional lawyer Shawn Buckley, to the Standing Committee on Health. We were inspired, because one of the t-shirts in their “Ban Series” is all about parsley! More on the recipe below.


We hope you’ll also consider buying a t-shirt and supporting NHPPA’s fundraising efforts: https://www.teechip.com/ban-parsley

The front of the t-shirt reads:
Ban Parsley

The back of the t-shirt reads:

Health Canada agrees that parsley has positive health benefits, but refused to allow parsley in a natural product because its safety has not been demonstrated by clinical trials.

Something to think about?

Now, on to our parsley recipe!
