Ways to Add Garlic to Your Diet 

1. Add chopped or minced garlic to spaghetti, lasagna or any other pastas dish you enjoy. I enjoy making pastas and garlic is always a must-have flavor.



2. Add garlic for flavor to baked or mashed potatoes. Do not fry the potatoes with the garlic because burning this herb could be detrimental to your meal.
