Rosemary is another beneficial herb that is often used with different kinds of meat. Rosemary leaves have a lot of anti-oxidants and have anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory functions. It is believed to lower the risk of cancer, especially breast cancer.

Eating a lot of oil or grease, especially when you bake or saute meat, may result in a lot of free radicals that are harmful to your body. Adding rosemary and other herbs reduces the risk of oxidation of the cell membrane of your body cells by neutralizing the free radicals.

Rosemary leaves are best consumed when they are fresh. However, if you can't eat them all, you can always dry them naturally by putting them into the fridge for a week or two.
