Happy July 4th! If we slip, the next meal or snack just get back on track! We learn from success and challenges. Avoid guilt, shame or blame and instead look for the root cause, make an adjustment and test out.
How about garlic? A food that provides a unique flavor for a variety of meals. When crushed chopped or chewed, the beneficial compound allicin is present. Garlic is only 4 calories per clove, and some research suggests garlic may reduce blood pressure and cholesterol, but studies show mixed results. Garlic may also have antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties as well. If you enjoy garlic, include multiple days per week!
