If your typical source of minty fresh breath is mouthwash, you're in for a treat when you try fresh mint leaves. This aromatic herb won't cost you any carb grams or calories in the small amounts needed to flavor foods and drinks.
Tip: Check for fresh mint in the produce section of the supermarket, or grow your own in a container garden. If using dried mint, crush the leaves between your fingers to help bring out the flavor.
Did you know: Mint leaves that are picked before the plant starts to flower have more flavor.
