Don’t throw away the radish greens

Did you know that the radish greens are full of nutrients and antiodixants? In fact, they possibly contain more nutrients and goodness than the roots.

The leaves of radish are full of anti-oxidants, phytochemicals, and minerals; they are on par with superfoods like kale, and are great for detoxifying the body of heavy metals and toxins too.

It does have a peppery taste which many people don’t like, however, I like to juice it, or throw it in a smoothie with other sweeter fruits (e.g. apple, pineapples) to hide the taste.

Radish green goes limp quite quickly – so soon after buying, cut the leaves off and use within 1-2 days. If you can’t, then freezing is a good option.
