Have A Radish


Fresh radishes with some sea salt make a great snack, don't they? I don't really know how to use them otherwise. Ok, sliced in salads, but does anyone cook them? 
Just read that there are different kinds of radishes. These ones are Red Globe radishes, but there are also white Winter Daikon, black Spanish, green Chinese and purple varieties.

What are the health benefits of a radish:
  • Radish is very good for liver and stomach, and it acts as a powerful detoxifier too. It purifies the blood and eliminates toxins and waste.
  • It's diurectic in nature and clenas out the kidneys.
  • It's rich in vitamin C
  • Radish is packed with antioxidants
  • It's high in fibre and relieves symptoms of constipation
  • radishes have been known to soothe sore throats and relieve congestion by clearing the sinuses.

  3. My mom instroduced me to this veggie when I was still very young to even know what the word "antioxidant" means. I love radish and it is almost a staple in my house. My boys love it too. I am now introducing it to my grandson. He seems to like it too. :)

  4. When I was little I used to hate radish as it was a bit too spicy for me. I'm loving it now though :)
