Top 10 Grocery Items from Radish Republic for your best health.
Updated: Mar 5
If you are feeling scared of viruses, flu and illness, the best way to shield yourself is with a healthy diet. We recommend adding these 10 items from Radish Republic to your diet. Get healthy from the inside out, instead of relying on things that are likely making it worse like hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer is full of toxic chemicals including triclosan that is also an ingredient in pesticides. Then you are applying it to the largest organ on your body, your skin. If you try to eat organic food, definitely stay away from hand sanitizer. Try improving your health with these 10 things instead.
1. FRUITS and VEGETABLES
No surprise here, but we all need a little reminder. Local organic vegetables and fruits from small farms are the most nutrient dense and they are just fresher.
2. LEAFY GREENS and MICRO GREENS
Leafy greens and especially micro greens are filled with vitamins, minerals and trace minerals. Micro greens offer convenience too because they are so handy to add to sandwiches, salads, smoothies and ramen.
Apples and bananas are both natural sources of prebiotics that work together with probiotics to improve your digestions. Try eating them before your meals ideally containing probiotics.
These are three products from Radish Republic that contain probiotics - also Kombucha, not pictured. Add them to your meals to improve digestion.
5. PASTURED EGGS
Pastured eggs regulate your cholesterol and improve it overall compared to regular eggs which add to bad cholesterol. Pastured eggs are high in omega threes, higher in vitamins and lower in saturated fat. It is a great source of vegetarian protein.
6. HEBAL TEA
Herbal tea can help with physical and mental health issues. Check the Tooth of the Lion website for how specific products can help. Herbal tea with lemon and honey is relaxing and calming.
7. LOCAL HONEY
Real local honey is used by many people who suffer from allergies. We are not making any claims, but the cheap stuff is not real honey and will definitely not help. Allergies are already getting bad in the LV and are predicted to become extremely problematic this year.
8. HOT SAUCE
We have a large selection of hot sauces. They have vitamin C, serve as an anti-inflammatory and can prevent chronic illnesses. Sub in hot sauce for pepper or peppers.
9. WILD SALMON
Salmon is a heart healthy food filled with vitamins, minerals, Omega threes, and helps fight inflammation. It is an excellent source of protein and it tastes great. Totally different product than farmed salmon.
10. SPROUTED GRAINS AND SOURDOUGH BREAD
Sprouted grains can be easier to digest with a lower glycemic index. These wraps also contain vegetables. We get sourdough bread also - not shown - from three local bakeries. Sourdough can be easier to digest for people with problems with gluten. The sourdough from Switchback we get on Fridays is also made of local Red Cat Farm grains which are harvested mechanically. People with gluten issues may be reacting to the conventional grain-harvesting methods which uses herbicides.
