Chimichurri sauce is a classic sauce from Argentina that is great to prepare on the side of meat, fish or chicken.
I recommend preparing this sauce because it contains a combination of antioxidants that fight the damage of free radicals.
Free radicals cause oxidative stress (imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body) and negatively change lipids, proteins, and DNA and trigger several human diseases. Eating more antioxidants will assist in coping this oxidative stress. Infections from disease, air pollution, poor nutrition, physical and mental stress increase the formation of free radical in the body. Certain foods and drinks like alcohol, trans-fat, frying oils on high heat, smoked foods and burnt foods may increase free radicals in the body.
Enjoy this delicious, refreshing and spicy sauce! And support your health with nutrient-packed nutrition.
