After all, they're just too tasty to be a side-dish. All you’ll need to make Dr Spages delicious garlic mushrooms is some good quality mushrooms and a few slices of bacon. With a low glycemic index, these garlic mushrooms are a diabetes-safe recipe. Not to mention, a healthy heaping of garlic eaten regularly has great anti-inflammatory properties and lots of anti-oxidants, perfect for those suffering with nerve pain.
