Garlic is a great natural way to boost your immune system which can help in our battle against those winter colds and sniffles. It’s also delicious and is a great way to add flavour without calories!! If you are worried about the garlic breath chew a bit of parsley after your meal.
This healthy pesto recipe is an easy way to add in some extra garlic to your diet – stir it through pasta for the ultimate winter warmer, stuff it inside some chicken, use it to make bruschetta for a great after school snack or pop a dollop on top of a winter soup for an extra burst of flavour.
