Dandelion Radish Soup for Anti Inflammatory and Detox with olive oil and sea salt, a simple dish for anti inflammatory and detox...
Harvest this wild dandelion from the weed grows in the backyard. My 80+ mom said dandelion with its Roots, Leaves, and Flowers is full of gold and highly nutritious! It helps detoxify the liver, aids in digestion, helps fight inflammation, a powerhouse of antioxidants, boost the immune system, clear acne, may lower blood pressure, aid in weight loss and helps in diabetes. Dandelion greens are a good source of calcium and vitamin K — both of which are associated with the prevention of bone loss. Inulin, a fiber found in the dandelion root, may also support healthy bones through improved digestion and the promotion of healthy gut bacteria. You may make a fresh dandelion soup or brew dried leaves or roots to make tea.
Low in calories, high in nutrition, do not let the bitterness of the lovely dandelion green deter you. A long low cook in the VitaClay will yield a tender green with a nice bite. Bitter foods are key for our health and immune system and may aid in balancing our blood sugar and hunger. They stimulate bile production and aid in fat metabolism. Dandelion greens are high in vitamins A and K as well as potassium and calcium.
