I love ’em but I only eat them at the annual County Fair in September. People don’t want to get near me after that so I save the treat for the end of the day just before going home. I wouldn’t pass up this opportunity, however, because garlic is good for you and all that is good comes from God.
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. Genesis 1:31
Also, according to a report on WebMD, “A new study shows red blood cells process compounds from digested garlic and turn them into the cell messenger hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which relaxes blood vessels and increases blood flow. Therefore, eating garlic may increase our natural supply of this vital chemical and play a role in reducing the risk of heart disease.”
To me this is great news. I know that God cares about our well being and provides the natural foods that keep us healthy. So when I hear about a food that offers good health and good taste, I’m interested in learning more.
I first heard of garlic’s health properties from my husband, a man who likes garlic so much that he once claimed if there was such a thing as garlic ice cream he’d stand in line for it. I’m not willing to go that far. A few years ago he had a chance to make good on his claim. We attended the Garlic Festival in a town near our home and sure enough a vendor was selling garlic ice cream. Charles backed off. “Maybe next year!”
