    Fruit of the Gods, It Is!

    I'd really like to incorporate garlic into my diet a bit more.  Its limited to certain foods, like in pasta or on bread.  But I find the taste to be so pleasing, I don't mind just tearing into a clove of garlic raw from time to time!  I'm going to try some new...

    It May Smell Bad to Some,

    but I don't care...I love it in many foods, especially Italian food, and Shrimp Scampi. I don't eat a lot of bread, but I will if it's garlic bread!

    But

    I’m worried that I’m going to start smelling like garlic. I started eating raw garlic cloves with my okra. I feel like I can still taste and smell the garlic hours after I’ve eaten them. I read that it can come out of your pores. I hope not. That would not be good

    Garlic Love

    I like sticking a couple of cloves of garlic in everything I eat, and just eating the cloves whole. They are so delicious, and make the meal taste fantastic too.  I don't even care about the health benefits (even though there are alot). I just think they are yummy :-)
