Veggie Soup international

I am doing a little fall detox. I like to use soup and broths during these times, so today I made a veggie soup but pulled from some international favorites. This soup is loaded with nutrition and flavor. The ingredients I used are packed with vitamin C, antioxidants, beta-carotene, zinc, iron and many more. But the one think I am blown away with is this root veggie, Daikon.

Daikon is a Japanese radish that is eaten raw, shredded, stir fried, and even juiced. But the healing benefits is what got my attention. Daikon has the ability to help remove excess fat and protein from the body when you mix grated daikon with a small amount of soy sauce. Also a tea is made with daikon, shitake mushrooms and seaweed (kombu) this tea is known to lower fever and fight infection.

But the coolest thing about this radish is the fact that there are enzymes found in daikon which has the ability to slow down the production of nitrosamine, a carcinogen found in the chemicals of many processed foods. Nitrosamine attacks our gut, but daikon is used to combat nitrosamine’s effects.

So next time you are shopping look for this little healing radish. Remember to set the table with love.
