It’s potent in scent but it has the wonderful ability to make so many dishes taste. . . Oh so delicious! Garlic is a plant and part of the onion (allium) family. Not only is this plant delicious and nutritious but contains very few calories and is jam packed with vitamins and minerals.

Our MY Food healthy meals do not at present contain any garlic for various reasons. However, we would most certainly recommend adding some to your MY Food meals, adding garlic to your own home cooking and/or supplementing some into your diet. Here is why:
