Garlic adds a lot of flavor with minimal calories – only 4 calories per clove. Not only is garlic delicious in a wide variety of dishes from Keto-friendly “pasta” to stuffed chicken breasts, but garlic is also incredibly healthy. It can boost immune function, reduce inflammation, and even reduce the number of sick days you have (by 61%) if you do catch a cold.
