Have a clove of garlic per day to keep yourself healthy as it is one of the healthiest foods. It has allicin in it which acts as an antioxidant, has anti-bacterial properties, may help prevent colds and yeast infections. Researches found that garlic has been shown to protect rats from diabetes complications such as retinopathy, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, and neuropathy. It also has anti-clotting abilities which protects against heart attacks and stroke. Add to soups, roasts, etc

    I absolutely love garlic. I would put it in my cereal if I thought the tastes wouldn't clash. :-) But it is really good to know that it is very healthy for me.
