6. Foods might cause stinky breath, but they help to keep you healthier.
According to research done by the Cancer Council Australia, high levels of allium vegetables, vegetables such as garlic, onions, and shallots reduce stomach cancer risk. They state that garlic just might help protect us against bowel cancer, as well. That’s because not only does garlic add flavor to many of your meals and taste delicious, but it is also anti-carcinogenic. Meaning it has to do with the delaying and prevention of the development of cancer. Take that vampires – we won’t just be eating it to keep you away anymore!
There are plenty of ways to add more garlic into your diet, by making homemade and fresh dishes for your lunches and dinner, rather than store-bought, ready-to-eat meals. Not only is it healthier, but it also makes it easier to add things, such as garlic, into the recipe, without feeling that it’s being forced into it. Meals like oven-baked fish or chicken dishes can be made using plenty of garlic, as well as meals like stir-fries and soups.
