Health and Wellness, Nutritionally Speaking

A refreshing and flavorful herb

We just returned from a few days away “glamping.” We enjoyed hikes along the Deschutes, sitting by the fire, and meeting other campers and their pets. We usually eat mostly the same foods as at home, do as much precooking as possible, but often have some kind of treat food. I returned home as a result with a tummy ache, and Donna suggested I brew myself a cup of peppermint tea. We always have a jar of dried peppermint in our pantry from our garden to enjoy with a meal, or as a helpful remedy.
