I can't say enough about the benefits of garlic. Garlic is touted as a super health food by many medical experts and I have to agree.

As for broccoli, it's another one of those super-foods. It's healthy, full of nutrition, naturally low in carbs and calories, and it's tasty too. Especially when you mix it in with garlic :).
