I'm so excited I just passed 1000 page views and wanted to take a moment to say THANKS!

Also don't forget to vote in the poll on the left.  Right now Wheat Free has the most votes, so if that's not what you want, please let me know . . . I will always share all kinds of allergy free recipes, I just want to post what you, my loyal friends, would like to see!

Since it's so close to Halloween and all the vampires, ghosts and ghouls,  today I'd like to give you a little info on one of my OMG! All-Star Veggies - Garlic!  Here's an excerpt from my almost ready for purchase cookbook - OMG! That's Allergy Free?

Garlic has long been considered a great way to ward off vampires but you may not know it is equally good at protecting our blood vessels and red blood cells from the ravages of oxidation and inflammation.  In fact it has more than 16 sulfur containing constituents that provide this protection!  Additionally, it lowers triglyceride levels, protects LDL cholesterol from oxidation (and that prevents plaque build up), regulates clotting factors, thins the blood, regulates blood pressure and blood sugars, is a powerful anti-microbial, lowers the risk of all known cancers and enhances the utilization of iron.  And if that were not reason enough to add some flavor to your next dish, garlic is a good source of manganese and selenium which are co-factors for the most powerful antioxidant our own bodies produce – glutathione.

Glutathione is considered by many scientists and physicians to be the most important substance in our body.  It's produced inside our cells, so we must deliver the proper nutrients to the cells every day.  

Lucky me I LOVE garlic!

Here is a great recipe for easy and tasty roasted garlic!

Slow Oven Roasted Garlic

To make the most mellow, flavorful garlic and garlic oil, place 2 or 3 heads of garlic in a small ceramic pot with a lid.  Pour 1 cup olive oil over the garlic heads.  Cover and roast at your oven's lowest setting overnight.

Refrigerate and use one clove at a time or cut garlic head in half and serve.  Keep the garlic stored in the oil and when your roasted garlic is gone you have delicious garlic oil to use in your favorite recipes.

Here's a Tip for Your Natural Medicine Chest
If you triple strain this low temperature roasted garlic oil through cheese cloth you can store it in a dark bottle in the refrigerator and use as the absolute best ear drops that not only heal an ear infection but help to restore balance in a way that keeps them away!  As a Mom and a Doc this is the best way to treat ear infections in children and adults!
