Knowing what foods are right for you and trying to build your diet around those foods is a substantial step in the right direction, but why would you settle for an action when you could be making giant leaps?
Garlic is Good For You
I always knew that garlic is good for you, with its remarkable antibiotic properties and when flu season approaches, I always double my intake of garlic.
The only downside is that it has a persistent smell, which in turn has a deterring effect on those who have to interact with people all day long. This is what convinced me to look into alternative ways of cooking garlic so that it wouldn’t lose any of its remarkable properties.
It is a mistake to cook it at high temperatures because this will only cause a major part of the allicin in its composition to be lost.
To Get Rid of Garlic Smell
Crushed garlic will retain its properties significantly longer, and if you combine it with lemon and honey, it will taste better, and the smell will no longer be an issue. Feel free to add some cayenne pepper to push your immune system into overdrive and instead of resorting to lemon juice, pour the mixture into a lemon half that had its juice extracted and eat it whole.
- 1 lemon
- 1-2 cloves of garlic (depends on size of cloves)
- ⅛ teaspoon or a dash of cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon of raw honey
- Slice lemon into halves
- Squeeze all the lemon juice out of one half and place in a small bowl while keeping the half you extracted the juice from for the last step (store the other half for later use).
- Finely chop the garlic and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. Then add it to the lemon juice with the cayenne pepper.
- Add the honey to the mix and stir all ingredients thoroughly.
- Pour the entire mixture back into the lemon half (which you extracted the juice from in Step 2)
- Consume the finished product in its entirety including all the lemon pulp. Hold it in your hand and cup it as if you’re holding a fruit. Repeat recipe in 4 hours with the other lemon half.
