Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

Garlic. Healthy & Cheap.

You probably aren't as health-minded now as you will be later in life. Hey - it's expensive! Fancy organic food is pricey and it's hard to not have fresh food go bad in your NYC fridge with an unpredictable schedule. (and happy hour specials, sponsored parties and generous friends with smokes make vice affordable) So - try and eat some garlic whenever you can because a garlic-rich diet protects against various cancers. And do it the right way:

"Many home chefs mistakenly cook garlic immediately after crushing or chopping it, added Dr. Kraus. To maximize the health benefits, you should crush the garlic at room temperature and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. That triggers an enzyme reaction that boosts the healthy compounds in garlic."
