While cooking, sprinkle meat, chicken with oregano for flavor. Use it in marinades or stuffings. Chop and mix into bread or pizza dough for a herby flavor. Add fresh oregano leaves to a salad.
Fresh oregano is a great antibacterial agent. It has phytonutrients (thymol and carvacrol), which fight infections such as staph. It's loaded with antioxidants that help prevent cell damage, and it's an excellent source of fiber, vitamin K, manganese, iron, vitamin E, tryptophan and calcium.
