Looks lovely but I hate garlic😡 Love onions though so maybe it could be done using onions instead. My grandmother always had boiled onions with all her main meals and lived till she was 96 with hardly a ill day in her life so there must be something in the onion/garlic consumption theory.😊👍

Sound lovely and i really look forward to trying it but i would maybe be careful as to specifics on cancer. I have garlic every day, dont eat a lot of processed food at all and other than my weight have no other health issues other than very mild proctitis. Actually had a full bloodwork done about 8 weeks ago and clean bill of health. I have just had precancerous cells removed from my colon. I am only 33. I am now at a much greater risk of developing colorectal cancer. There is NO cancer history in my family.

Good luck on your weight loss
