Love garlic and its health benefits but hate garlic breath? Drink milk with your meal.
If you're planning a romantic Italian dinner this Valentine's Day, you may want to consider drinking a glass of milk along with your meal.

Both fat-free and whole milk lowered the concentration of volatile odor-emitting compounds from garlic in the nose and mouth. Due to its higher fat content, whole milk was found to be more effective. Although drinking milk after eating a garlic-infused meal can still help, the study found that drinking it during the meal will have better results.
