I have a little herb garden to keep me supplied with my favorites like basil and oregano. Other herbs are too much of a pain to grow. Cilantro is one of my favorite herbs, but it's an annual. You have to plant it from seed, use it when it's ready, and then watch it go to seed. I'm too busy to deal with that.
On the other hand I can buy a bunch of cilantro at my vegetable market for 75 cents. But if I'm not careful, it dries out in my vegetable bin and is worthless in a few days.
Some fitness myths never die. One is that you can flatten your belly by doing sit-ups. The fact is that your genetics distribute your fat, not your personal trainer. Burn fat by eating fewer calories. Your belly will flatten whether you do sit-ups or not.
Another eternal myth: my muscles will turn to fat if I stop exercising. Muscle is muscle; fat is fat. One does not transform into the other. If you stop exercising you will lose muscle. Eat too much and you will gain fat.
