Illnesses have found
the humans. Ugh!
For those not yet affected, we can feel the lurking anticipation. Cooties everywhere. (I joke, but some
of the cold/viruses are beyond scary!)
So.... I'm sharing my #1 go-to in my prevention
bag of tricks... Garlic! It's nature's antibiotic.
The benefits can be googled
- from lowered blood pressure to super immune boosting anti-bacterial and anti-viral.
Tastes amazing. Super simple.
Roasted with olive oil, thyme, dill, salt and pepper - it softens to a paste, which can be spread on
toast (Yum!) mushed in mashed potatoes (YUM!), soups, any and every thing you want... I love it on its own.
If we all start roasting/eating, maybe those cooties will get the message they are not welcome! We may not be able
to glass dome our homes, but a hefty garlic aroma cloud could suffice. (Or at the very least keep us from being able to smell
each other over our own garlicky selves. Lol)
Seriously. Works great!! There's
also odorless pills available. (Can't very well massage wreaking of garlic... Have a stash in my house at all times.)
