The Flourishing Experiment

Kari discusses Jeff Haden’s article "7 Things Happy People Do" and how running is integrated with happiness. Serena Marie RD comes on the show and reveals the Food of the week and why garlic is a great herb to eat. Kari and Serena share many recipes of cooking with garlic.

The Running Lifestyle also launches its first Monthly Challenge which is (drum roll please):

Write down 3 things you are grateful for 5 times a week.  Being grateful for the small things is something happy people do.

I’d love to hear what you are grateful for and how the challenge is working for you. Please check in with your progress on Facebook, Twitter or by emailing me and we can help keep each other be accountable to writing down what we are grateful for.

Serena Marie, RD discusses garlic and how it's great for our hearts and rich in sulfur and selenium.  Serena likes to make her own salsa with uncooked garlic tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro. 

She also likes to roast broccoli in a 400 degree oven with lemon and parmesan. When the brocolli comes out of the oven, toss it with pine nuts and fresh garlic.

Himalayan salt is her preferred type of salt. It doesn’t need to be iodized because its already iodized.

Kari puts garlic in a marinade or salad dressing and presses a lot of garlic at once. By pressing a lot of garlic at one time, it makes it possible to save the extra and use in other recipes.
