I have been on a roasted vegetable kick lately and roasting all kinds of vegetables I haven’t before, like radishes!
My usual way of eating radishes is very “un-dietitian” like of me: I dip the halves in salt! So addicting.
I can blame my preceptor from my dietetic internship up in Prince George (Northern BC) for this addiction. She told me she stopped eating radishes because this was the only way she ate them, so naturally, I had to try it. Don’t do it.
We all need some sodium – 1500mg sodium per day to be precise. That being said, on average Canadians get about 3400 mg per day! Reducing our intake to 2000 mg or less per day may help lower blood pressure and improve our over all health.
