Featured Herb - Garlic
It's easy to just throw a little garlic into stir frys, soups, pastas, or on breads and pizzas. Or take some time to roast whole cloves for a fragrant, yummy treat. However you prepare garlic, be sure to crush or at least bruise it first. Doing so releases allicin, the primary active component in garlic with all those wonderfully healthful properties.
Oh, and by the way garlic is also great for cardiovascular health, is high in anti-oxidants, and provides anti-inflammatory action - among other wonderful health benefits too numerous to mention.
