Nearly everyone knows that processed foods are bad for you, and that the easiest way to stay healthy is to eat more naturally-occurring ingredients. Many say that they get tired of bland flavors, so they stray from the healthy path, back into processed foods. However, you can make your food taste great with explosive flavors each time. Herbs and spices are the key to a great and healthy meal! 

All spices are originally a part of a plant -- flowers, fruits, seeds, barks, leaves, and roots can be made into spices. Since they are natural, many are able to kick start metabolism while also giving great flavor to a dish. They are best when added before or during cooking, because it gives the spice time to infuse the entire dish. This should also be done with herbs. 

Herbs are another great kitchen staple to give big flavor, many times without using much product. They are filled with anti-oxidants, essential oils, vitamins, phyto-sterols, and many other nutrient substances. These aid our bodies in fighting against germs and toxins, and they also boost immunity levels. 

Fennel pollen in particular is great to use in virtually any dish. With a high level of Vitamin C, it boosts immune system health, and its fiber helps reduce cholesterol.Fennel is growing in popularity due to its usage versatility combined with incredible flavor. You can buy pollen at farmer's markets, the organic aisle at most stores, or online. Pollen can be used with meat, fish, or veggies in a dry rub, marinade, or even on its own. It gives a great kick to a traditional meal.
