 Reasons to “Eat Your Radishes”

While many vegetables have been pushed upon us at the dinner table as kids,

 you don’t often hear “eat your radishes honey.” Broccoli, spinach, green

 beans and asparagus are the more common culprits, but it might be worth

 adding radishes to the repertoire. As a cruciferous v
egetable like broccoli,

 radishes have a host of health benefits but are typically under-appreciated –

 pushed around on crudité platters until they’re all that’s left and then

 drowned in ranch dressing to wash them down.

However, for both their health benefits and amazing array of flavors radishes

 top our list of foods to start paying more attention to and eating on a daily

 basis. Especially in the spring and early summer when they grow locally and

 can be picked at their height of freshness and flavor, radishes should be a

 staple item in your kitchen.

Beyond the natural zing and satisfying crunch they provide, here are

 some good reasons to “eat your radishes!”

 Naturally cooling

Radishes are a naturally cooling food and their pungent flavor is highly

 regarded in eastern medicine for the ability to decrease excess heat in the

 body that can build up during the warmer months.

 Sooth sore throats

Their pungent flavor and natural spice can help eliminate excess mucus in the

 body and can be especially helpful when fighting a cold. Radishes can help

 clear the sinuses and soothe soar throats too.

Aids digestion

Radishes are a natural cleansing agent for the digestive system, helping to

 break down and eliminate stagnant food and toxins built up over time.

Prevents viral infections

Because of their high vitamin C content and natural cleansing effects, regular

 consumption of radishes can help prevent viral infections.

Eliminates toxins

In Eastern and Ayurvedic healing practices radishes are said to have effective

 toxin-purging effects, helping break down and eliminate toxins and cancer-

causing free radicals in the body.

Protects against cancer. If you research, the white radishes are

packed with health benefits as well.

NOW! Pick up that bag of radishes and get crunch'n!

They are indeed priceless.

My favorite with coffee of course - and they gotta be warm.


And another kitchen from the good ole days. Check out that

flooring and the wild wallpaper. I remember the towel racks that

you could spread apart and seems there was always canisters

kept above the stove on a shelf.


And someone got a ride today.
