Garlic and Onions
As we’ve learned from our burger-scarfing colleagues, garlic and onions stick with you, and their powers transcend offensive breath. “These foods are rich in sulfur-containing compounds,” says Sandy Wolner, registered dietitian nutritionist with Pampered Chef. “When the compounds are absorbed into the bloodstream, they will come back out through the lungs, producing the bad breath. They can even come out of your pores causing B.O.” The good news is that raw garlic and onions are the worst offenders. Cooking 'em up, while not a complete odor-killer, can at least reduce that unwanted stink.
