As you may know by now, parsley—the little green garnish that was once just a cook’s afterthought—bursts with nutrition. Indeed, parsley (Petroselinum crispum) is an herbal multivitamin: A cup of minced fresh parsley (about four ounces) contains more beta-carotene than a large carrot, almost twice as much vitamin C as an orange, more calcium than a cup of milk, and twenty times as much iron as one serving of liver. And because its taste is mild, eating a cup will not assault the taste buds (in fact, parsley is an excellent breath-freshener).

One thing you’ll notice after eating a lot of parsley is that it’s a mild diuretic. That can be a plus for men with prostate problems and for women who retain water before menstruation. But parsley can also stimulate menstruation, so women who are pregnant or who suspect that they might be pregnant should avoid eating parsley in large amounts.
