Cornucopia.org

This is a link to the website, Cornucopia.org, that we learned about at Kripalu.  John mentioned it to us.  I have since taken a peek around the site and it’s a great resource for learning more about the organic and natural food industry.

Stove Snack

At Kripalu, we learned that a clove of garlic a day is essential to health. In order to get more garlic, I started leaving a cast iron pan with sautéed garlic cloves on my stove as a snack.

I took one whole garlic, separated the cloves and left the skin on. I placed it in a cast iron pan with some Extra Virgin Olive Oil and rosemary. I lightly sautéed it at a low heat and left it in the pan when it was done.

This way, I have a quick snack to eat. The strong flavor of the garlic is enough to get me through an hour or so.

Note – garlic’s legacy of bad breath isn’t as bad as expected!

This allows me to get more than my daily dose of garlic!
