Garlic chicken soup and green tea

When you have a cold, a bowl of chicken soup really and truly does help. But to boost the cold-fighting power of this old-fashioned remedy even more, add garlic:

“Adding garlic, a fresh clove or two minced, to hot chicken soup just before you're ready to sit down and eat it really does help,” [Healing Remedies co-author] Lydia Wilen said. Then sip a cup of green tea to take away garlic breath, she suggested.

And green tea doesn't just work on garlic breath, but bad breath in general.
