A Change Worth Making by Lisa Johnson, RD

Most people know that garlic has numerous health benefits, yet frequent consumption wanes due to the challenge of unwrapping those powerful little cloves! Therefore, I am recommending a very easy change that will greatly impact your health. Simply buy bulk bags of peeled garlic so you can easily add a handful to most any dish.

I throw whole or chopped cloves of garlic into most foods that encounter my stove or oven…

  • Vegetables
  • Potatoes
  • Roasts and other meats
  • Sauces
  • Soups and Stocks
  • Dressings

Garlic contains a powerful antioxidant called allicin that fights cancer. It is also an effective blood thinner known for lowering blood pressure. And, garlic boosts immunity by killing most infectious bacteria and other foreign invaders. In fact, 1 mg of allicin is as potent as 15 units of penicillin! Yes, garlic is a natural antibiotic! Garlic is also full of vitamins and minerals and works to repel mosquitos for up to 8 hours if you rub the cloves on your skin. Keep in mind, however, that you may repel more than mosquitoes! Seriously, though, garlic is a powerful super-food and having the bulk bag ready to go will really help you reap the benefits by consuming more.

Add bulk, peeled garlic to your grocery list and enjoy trying it in the simple recipes below.

Truly, this is a change worth making!
