Munch Garlic Bread

The aroma and flavor of warm garlic bread can reduce your stress levels by as much as 39 percent, according to studies at Chicago’s Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation. Garlic’s essential oils stimulate the olfactory nerve -- which then signals your brain to dial down production of the stress hormones adrenalin and cortisol, explains lead researcher Alan Hirsch, M.D., author of "What Flavor is Your Personality?" For best results, cook slowly at moderate temps, so the soothing aroma can infuse the entire house and calm any family member who’s feeling out of sorts.
