This morning I juiced up some of fall’s best crops fresh from my local CSA farm share. The large radishes looked like beets, but when cutting into them, their peppery yet light smell and white interior let me know… this is not a beet! Radishes are very healthy vegetables as a member of the cruciferous veggie family, like broccoli, cauliflower, kale (Tuscan cabbage) and brussels sprouts. Cruciferous vegetables provide important nutrients to support the liver in its natural detoxification processes and crucifers contain additional phytonutrients that can help to reduce the risk of certain cancers. Adding a touch of sweetness and antioxidants from the apple and pear gives you a sweet yet tangy juice.
