-2 TBS Garlic Paste (or minced, fresh, or powder)

-Refrigerate at least 2 hours, or up to two days. Freeze if marinating longer.
*This is not a spicy marinade (kid-friendly). However you could add red pepper or cayenne to spice it up.
*Don't skimp on the fat (oil) here... fat is an important component of FLAVOR, as well as health. Nutrients are better absorbed and utilized with fat, digestion is smoother, and satiety is reached.
*Same with the salt... salt is a vital mineral and electrolyte for muscular and nerve function. Athletes, or anyone, who sweats regularly or profusely are especially in need. Personally, I add 3-4 TBS.
*I typically make up to 5-6 pounds of marinated protein with this recipe, but it works perfectly well for less.
