What I recommend you use it on:

  • Chicken ( I LOVE the flavor it gives!)
  • Chickpeas
  • Lean ground beef or turkey
  • Tofu

3. Garlic Powder (NOT garlic salt!!!)

 

Garlic makes everything taste better, but be careful that you're using garlic powder and not garlic salt. Fresh garlic cloves are also great to use! Garlic powder is just the more affordable and convenient option.

  • Contains Manganese, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Selenium, and Fiber
  • Fights common colds and other illnesses
  • Able to reduce blood pressure
  • Helpful for various cancers (like lung, prostate and brain cancer)
  • May help reduce risk of premature delivery

What I recommend you use it on:

  • EVERYTHING! Seriously I really do season everything with garlic powder or diced garlic cloves.
  • Chicken
  • Lean ground beef or turkey
  • Tofu
  • Roasted vegetables
  • Salad dressing

I chose these seasonings because of their wonderful health benefits, but there are many other seasonings and herbs that I use.
