Anyone who knows me knows I absolutely love garlic and am constantly adding it to pretty much everything I eat. Having said that I'm all about National Garlic Day, which was April 19th. So in honor of this amazing member of the onion family, I give you 5 facts about garlic...
Garlic can help prevent infections or colds. It can also slow down aging and even prevent colon or breast cancer.
It's typically considered a "super food".
Garlic contains only 4 calories per clove, and has the ability to break down fat, increasing metabolism.
China produces around 66% of the World’s garlic.
Garlic and onions are toxic to cats and dogs. So keep Fido away from the kitchen floor when cooking with it (also onions and grapes).
Now go cook something extra garlicky!
