Introduction

NUTRITION ON YOUR PLATE:

RADISH HEALTH: Radish bulbs, often called “globes,” are peppery in flavor and come in many different varieties + colors.
*Vitamin C content- 1/2 cup of radishes offers about 14 % of your recommended daily allowance of *Vitamin C; an antioxidant that helps fight against free radicals in your body and helps prevent cell damage. Vitamin C also aids in the production of collagen, which supports healthy skin and blood vessels.
*Fiber + water content aid in improved digestion.
*Good levels of potassium + folate.
*Radishes also contain phytochemicals such as indoles; an anti-cancer property often found throughout the Brassica family of veggies.
*Radishes also contain an important isothiocyanate antioxidant compound called sulforaphane; a potential cancer fighter.

TIP- USE THE WHOLE VEG: save the radish greens to add to a salad or use in a pesto

MICROGREENS HEALTH: microgreens are young vegetable greens that are approximately 1–3 inches tall. Essentially they are the infant form of our usual greens.

The overall benefit? These babies; literally, have a higher vitamin, mineral and antioxidant levels than the same quantity of “adult” greens. Some studies say up to 40 times higher!

Different kinds of microgreens:
*Brassicaceae family: Cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, watercress, radish and arugula
*Asteraceae family: Lettuce, endive, chicory and radicchio
*Apiaceae family: Dill, carrot, fennel and celery
*Amaryllidaceae family: Garlic, onion, leek
*Amaranthaceae family: Amaranth, quinoa swiss chard, beet and spinach
*Cucurbitaceae family: Melon, cucumber and squash
