Garlic Breath Neutralizer

A study was done a few years ago on garlic breath and how to neutralize it (the things we spend money on to study about…).  A study found that yogurt was the magic cure to all things stinky regarding raw onion and garlic.  Apartly it has an amazing ability to neautralize most of the smell.  Which is why having it in a salad like the recipe above is such a brilliant idea!

Immune Boosters Onions and Garlic (Raw Of Course)

It wasn’t for no reason that there’s old folklore about hanging garlic outside the windows to keep sickness and curses away.  Maybe the idea behind it is a little bit confused, but the plane simple fact is garlic and onions are both super strong natural antibiotics.

The Proof Is In The Pudding

Not to terribly long ago I had a terrible tooth pain and my mouth stank.  The dentist was booked solid for the next month and I was left with a patch of my gums tasting terrible.  I could only conclude I had an tooth abscess!  I tucked a piece of sliced onion in between my cheek and the gum for hours as I went around the house doing my daily work, and ate lots of mashed potatoes with raw garlic, onions and turmeric in it.  After 2 days the pain stopped completely the nasty smell was gone and everything felt normal again.  The only thing that wasn’t normal was the smell of ME!!!!  I took another 3 days for the smell of garlic and onions to clear my system, but they were life savers.


If you have your own onion or garlic story I’d LOVE to hear it =)
