Healthy Tastes Great!

To triple-patty cheese and bread bombs we say,”No!” To all doughy cream sticks we say, “Nonsense!” To deep fried potatoes on a stick we say, “Seriously? Where can I get one of those?” No. Wait. We say, “Never!!!” But if all we did was complain about what people are eating we would be doing a disservice to our readers. Which is why we continue to bring Smart Fuel and Healthy Tastes Great! posts to you every week. Here are a few recipes to get excited about! (Who would have know radishes can elicit pure, unadulterated joy?)

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. That soup look delish!

  2. I love radishes! I’m so making the pea, radish and cuke salad!! Thanks for all the good veg recipes you guys post. Every single one I’ve tried (and I try quite a lot of them) has turned out just wonderfully. Keep up the great work! (Now if I could just find purslane…)

  3. Interesting! This is the first time I see anyone else using the radish leaves. When they are beautiful, I always make a soup with them (browned onion, leek, potatoes, zucchini, what ever I find, add some milk or cream and maizena (corn flour) if no potato). It is my mother-in-law’s idea, and I can really recommend it! (That way you can have both the salad and the soup :-)

    Buy the way, does anyone know the nutrition content of radish greens?

  4. Pelikan – I looked in the USDA food database; no luck. My guess is that radish greens would be similar to turnip greens, which are in the same family.
