Warm Arugula Salad: Use Food as Medicine


  • Arugula, seeds and radish are some Autumn seasonal foods which help to maximize your health.

  • Arugula is a cruciferous vegetable, in the same family as broccoli.

  • Along with radish, these foods are excellent detoxifiers, blood cleansers and contain compounds which have been shown to reduce inflammation, fight off infections and prevent cancer.

  • Arugula is high in bio-available (active) calcium and vitamin K. 

  • Vitamin K is especially important to keep calcium where it is supposed to be in the body and avoid calcification of blood vessels and stiffening of skin.
