Healthy Rosemary Cornbread


The Surprising Health Benefits of Rosemary


Chances are, you have a rosemary plant sitting on your windowsill right now. This herb is a staple in many kitchens around the world, and for good reason – it has a delicate, yet complex flavor that can enhance any dish. But did you know that rosemary has some pretty impressive health benefits, too? Read on to learn more about this amazing herb and all the ways it can improve your health.


1. Aids in Digestion

It can help to soothe an upset stomach and aid in digestion. This herb stimulates the production of bile, which helps the body to break down fats. It also contains Rosmarinic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce bloating and gas. Add a sprig of rosemary to your next meal if you’re feeling a little under the weather – your tummy will thank you!


2. Fights Free Radicals

A powerful antioxidant that can help to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can promote inflammation and contribute to various chronic diseases. Antioxidants like Rosemary scavenge these rogue molecules, making them harmless. So go ahead and add some extra rosemary to your next salad – your body will love you for it!


3. Boosts Brainpower

It has long been used as a natural treatment for memory problems and cognitive decline. This herb contains compounds that increase blood flow to the brain, improve cognitive function, and protect neurons from damage. Studies have shown that rosemary can boost memory retention and recall, making it a great tool for students during finals week! Try smelling rosemary essential oil before your next test or exam – you may just be surprised at how well you do.


As you can see, there are many reasons to love rosemary! This delicious herb isn’t just good for your taste buds – it’s good for your health, too.

Let us gather the ingredients


Healthy plant-based ingredients in a cornbread!


I was looking for a new recipe to try that has a few required ingredients, and I found one that sounded perfect – healthy rosemary cornbread. I gathered all of the healthy plant-based ingredients and got to work.


1. All-purpose flour: You can use any kind of flour but if you want to make this healthier choose wheat flour or look for gluten-free flour.

2. Baking soda & powder: These will be a natural leavening for the butter when baked.

3. Rosemary: Use fresh rather than frozen and thawed for the fresh earthy flavor.

4. Cornmeal: It serves as the base of this healthy recipe so do not try to omit this ingredient also it is naturally vegan.

5. Flax seeds: I highly recommend these flax seeds for eggs as they are easy to find; just stir them into water.

6. Raw sugar & kosher salt: Use to balance the flavor; adjust to taste, if needed.

7. Maple syrup: For drizzling or topped with vegan whipped cream they are optional but a great addition.

8. Vegetable oil: Use for greasing the baking dish to prevent sticking.

9. Almond milk: Feel free to use your favorite plant-based milk.
