Each Friday, theHealthNuttyProfessor is going to present a raw food of the week. Rawesome Friday.
Our first raw food?
Constipated after all the treats over the holidays? Struggling with headaches, or a sore throat?
Radishes are a laxative, high in vitamin C, fibre, and contain loads of zinc. They are a great way to detox after the holiday's! Also a wonderful source of B vitamins, vitamin K, manganese, calcium, iron, and potassium...just to name a few!
As a topical treatment, the juice from radishes helps as an anti-inflammatory and will reduce the pain of insect bites, too.
Adding radishes to salads is the most common way to eat them. But maybe you want to get a little nuttier? Check out this awesome blog Vegging Out on some new ways to enjoy this veggie.
Thanks for checking out the first of Rawesome Friday!
