My Fabulous Four Nature's Best

Fabulous four Ingredients
I call these fabulous four because of its nutritive benefits.Most of my recipes at least one of the following in ingredients
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Its one the best kind of oil for our health.Its a known fact that people from Mediterranean region have lesser rate of heart diseases because they use good dose of olive oil in their food.
All the types of Olive oil whether Extra virgin or virgin or simply olive oil have same health benefits .Olive oil can be used for any kind of cooking be it baking,roasting or shallow frying.
Do the Olive Test yourself
Rub some olive oil on your hands and wash your hands. Observe that you can easily wash it off. It disappears fast in the sink and you don't need a lot of hot water and detergent to wash it away. Your body which is like a glass of water it reacts the same.
If you have eaten some olive oil your body will evaporate it within 1½ hour via your pores. This means your body can handle it easily and does not have to waste any energy to digest it. This works differently with baking butter and other products, especially those based on animal products. In this case you have to scrub hard and need hot water and detergent to dissolve the fat in the water so it can be washed away.

Garlic has long been considered an herbal wonder drug, used to protect against plague by monks of the Middle Ages to treating the cold and common flu today. Hippocrates used garlic vapors to treat cervical cancer, and garlic poultices were placed on wounds during World War II as an inexpensive, and apparently quite effective replacement for antibiotics, which were scarce during wartime.
Modern science is beginning to substantiate the medicinal properties of garlic. Studies have shown garlic can control acne, suppress the growth of tumors, and is a potent antioxidant good for cardiovascular health. Other studies show garlic can reduce LDL or "bad" cholesterol and is a good blood-thinning agent to avoid blood clots that could lead to heart attack or stroke.
