The Health Benefits of Physical Touch

A close friend of mine mentioned to me the other day that when she and her husband first married, one of the activities she enjoyed most was having him rub her feet in the evenings while they chatted about their day. She really loved feeling the warmth of his hands and the pressure on her skin, as well as spending the time with him.

Roasted Garlic Recipe

With this super easy recipe, you get the great taste of garlic without the same sharpness that comes with raw garlic.

Ingredients:

One or more whole garlic heads
Extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees farenheit. A toaster oven will work just as well at the same temperature.
Lay garlic head on side and chop off top to expose the tops of each garlic clove. You want to chop off only a small amount so that all of the individual cloves remain firmly attached to remain as one whole garlic head.
Drizzle olive oil over the top of each garlic head.
Place garlic heads with tops facing up in a baking dish and bake until garlic cloves are soft when pressed - approximately 30-40 minutes.

Try this yummy roasted garlic as a spread over whole grain toast, in a healthy salad dressing, or in a homemade batch of creamy hummus. Read more about Roasted Garlic Recipe
