Sage contains vitamins A and C, along with several other antioxidants which help reduce the risk of serious health conditions like cancer. It's also rich in vitamin K, which aids the body in clotting blood. Since sage is usually taken in small amounts, it provides a high amount of nutrition without a lot of calories.
How to use:
Sage has a peppery taste and is often used for flavouring rich and fatty foods, especially as a marinade. In German cuisine, it is often used to flavour sausages and in Italian cuisine, to make burro e salvia where sage is sauteed in olive oil and butter until crisp then served with pasta. In ancient times, sage was used to increase women's fertility.
