Here’s a reason to eat more radishes: They aid in weight loss. 

Radishes are a member of the cruciferous veggie family, well known for their cancer-fighting potential. 

They also happen to be an excellent weight loss food for many reasons:

  • They are high in water content, making them filling,
  • They are only about 1 calorie each, and
  • They contain flavanoids, plant chemicals believed to play a role in weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight, according to a Harvard study published in BMJ. (1)

Spoon this salsa on top of salad or quinoa dishes, or on this veggie taco
