WHAT WE'RE COOKING THIS WEEK: Garlic

It's thought to ward off vampires and make your breath smelly, but when it comes to cooking, garlic is just as important as your appliance. About 100 grams of garlic has about 140 calories, 52 per cent of your daily intake of vitamin C, 60 per cent of your daily intake of vitamin B-6 and 18 per cent of your daily calcium. Garlic can be chopped and used for frying dishes, roasting meals or even eaten raw.

This superfood is a superfood for a reason. Garlic has a long list of health benefits including giving your immune system a boost, promoting a healthy heart and alleviates inflammation. It also has a great medical uses like getting rid of athlete's foot and annoying splinters.

And in case you missed it, last week we packed apples.
