Radishes

Seriously, these are pretty delish, that peppery crunchiness is fabulous. But if they are too “bitey” for you, have you ever considered roasting them?

So many colours to choose from, it makes my nutritionist heart sing!

First, some quick facts about radishes:

🔎 They are a root vegetable, come in several different colours & are related to cabbages.

🔎 Great source of vitamin C & the red skinned ones are super high in silica.

🔎 They are antibacterial & antifungal, as well as rich in antioxidants.

🔎 Radishes contain the phytochemical, indole, which promotes detoxification – seriously, your liver & kidneys love these little guys.

So, roasting radishes? I often chuck some radishes in when I’m doing a tray of roast vege – if you have not tried, it is super delish.  Even if you are not a huge fan of radishes, seriously give this a try.  The baking brings out the sweetness but tones the peppery flavour down.  Honestly, even my non radish peeps are onboard with roasted radishes!

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
