4 Top Health Benefits of Garlic

“With their unique combination of flavonoids and sulfur-containing nutrients, allium vegetables—such as garlic—belong in your diet on a regular basis. There’s research evidence for including at least one serving of an allium vegetable—such as garlic—in your meal plan every day. If you’re choosing garlic as your allium family vegetable, try to include at least 1/2 clove in your individual food portion. If you’re preparing a recipe, we recommend at least 1-2 cloves.

Garlic is a wonderful seasoning to add aroma, taste, and added nutrition to your dishes. We often recommend using raw chopped or pressed garlic in many of our dishes to take advantage of the benefits derived from garlic. However, if you cannot tolerate raw garlic, you can add chopped garlic to foods while they are cooking. It is best to add it towards the end of the cooking process to retain the maximum amount of flavor and nutrition.”

Garlic owes its smell to a sulfur compound. The fact that it stinks isn’t unique– sulfur compounds are renowned for their nasty odors. In fact, sulfur compounds in intestinal gas are responsible for the smell of flatulence. Those sulfur compounds are pretty potent stuff, considering that they make up just one percent of the total intestinal gas released!

We ate lots of garlic in my home…my father would grow it and it went in everything. He would make garlic sandwiches which we all loved to eat. Toast with butter and chopped garlic and a sprinkle of salt mmmm it was yummy. There were 3 girls in our family and my father used to love to tell us that the garlic would grow hair on our chests!  Diana Herrington

Garlic History

  • Once upon a time it was used as currency.
  • In the days of the pharaohs, ancient Egyptians considered garlic so valuable that they placed it in tombs, including in King Tut’s.
  • Ancient Greeks gave it to Olympian athletes for strength and stamina.
  • In India, 5,000-year-old Sanskrit records describe its curative properties.

Why you should let Garlic sit for 5 – 10 minutes?

To get most health benefits from Garlic, let it sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, after cutting and before eating or cooking.  Waiting 5 – 10 minutes allows the health-promoting allicin to form.  If you do not let it sit, allicin is never formed, so it is worth the wait. What is Allicin?

I was having dinner with some friends one evening. My friend, Catherine had made a stir fry with lots of garlic in it; she told me that she could only eat organic garlic as when she ate non-organic garlic she would have extreme digestive problems.

10 Worst Foods To Eat When You Want To Lose Weight.

10 Worst Foods to Eat When You Want to Lose Weight


 10 Worst Foods to Eat When You Want to Lose Weight


You have to think of so many things when you are dieting that it tends to get overwhelming. Many times, when people fall off the diet wagon it is simply because there is too much planning and too much to do. If you can think of these simple things and stick to lots of veggies, you will likely be successful in your dieting endeavors. It is all about moderation and being practical. Don’t starve yourself but think about what you are eating.


1. White Bread


Any other bread is fine. Yes, low carb is a craze, but white bread is absolutely the worst. Your body treats it like sugar and you will be hungry again before you know it.


2. Sugary Cereal


Sugar not only gives you the sugar crash but it makes you hungry again. Your body craves the sudden upswing in energy and you will find you are fighting even more to stay on track with your diet.

3. Whole Milk/Cream



Find alternatives. Yes, it tastes good but the added fat you are putting in your body for a small amount of fun is just not worth it. Consider flavored soy milks or rice milk instead. Great for coffee! .


4. Vegetable Oil


Yes it is better than animal fat but it is still very high in fat. Try to avoid vegetable oil and other oils in your food. A little olive oil is great now and then but baking things is usually better. Baked meats rather than fried are heart healthy and good for the waistline.


5. 100% Fruit Juice

Fruit is good for you but fruit juice is often not. Read the label carefully to make sure you are not getting a bunch of additives. In addition, don’t over drink it because it is still high in calories…

6. Potatoes


Potatoes themselves are not bad. What you put on potatoes, bad. Sour cream, butter, cheese, these are fatty foods. Try doing plain baked potatoes with salsa or veggies and you will have a filling meal that is not high in calories..




7. Soda

Even if you are drinking diet, it isn’t great. There is so much salt in soda that it tends to make you retain water and makes you hungry all over again. Avoid soda, drink water…

8. Fast Food


No brainer, right? Fast food places have come up with some healthier options, but in general it is best to avoid the temptation. Once you get in the habit of not letting yourself eat such things it becomes easier to not eat it at all. You will think ahead and pack better food.

9. Processed Meat


While processed meat might seem easy, it is bad for the system. Another high sodium product you will find yourself bloating up before you know it..

10. Processed Meals

Even the diet meals should be used in moderation. Fresh food is better for you. When you add up the amount of salt you take in via pre-made meals you will be amazed at the amount. It is one of the best ways to make an instant difference in your weight.
