I eat the pink radishes most of the time in salad, on their own (with a delicious sauce made with fresh cream) or mixed with greens. I also love them with butter and salt and I have recently been advised to try them with lemon juice and salt. Radishes are good for several reasons. They’re know for being natural cleansing agent for the digestive system. Because of their high vitamin C content and natural cleansing effects, regular consumption of radishes can help prevent viral infections. In Eastern and Ayurvedic healing practices radishes are said to have effective toxin-purging effects. With a very low calorie count, less than 20 calories in an entire cup, radishes are a great way to add nutrients, fiber and tons of flavor to your meals without compromising your health.
