Recipe and information brought to you by Holistic Nutrition, LLC

Summer, the days are longer and the winter coats are packed away.
We feel lighter and more energized.

As we mentally start feeling more centered in conjunction with
the rising temperature, we want to align that balance with our body;
especially our digestion.

Summer makes it easy to eat an abundance of fresh food.
What's the superfood of this season?

What does it taste like? Kind of like the heart of a cabbage or broccoli stems.
It's an exceptionally rich source of vitamin C; more so than cauliflower, strawberries, orange juice, and grapefruit juice! Kohlrabi is high in potassium! Increasing your potassium intake can reduce your blood pressure levels and increase bone mineral density. Kohlrabi also contains health-promoting phytochemicals that have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects.

Crisp kohlrabi is a fantastic salad ingredient.
I'm juicing it!
It can be eaten in thin, raw slices with dip,
 or go crazy..Kohlrabi can be steamed!

Simple sautee' recipe:
 Wash and cut kohlrabi bulb into slices or bite-size pieces; add
to a saucepan with a half inch of water, a dash of salt, and cover.
Then add zucchini, squash and other vegetables,
 some olive oil, onions, garlic, and spices.
Stir-fry for 5- 7 minutes Summer is here!
Kohlrabi is in season!
 Bon appetit!

MORE ABOUT Kohlrabi!
Kohlrabi contains goitrogens, plant-based compounds found in cruciferous vegetable
like kale, broccoli and "can" wreak havoc on the thyroid.
However, just because these
foods are high in goitrogens doesn't mean you should avoid them altogether.
Cooking reduces the goitrogens substances by a third.
 Only people with thyroid issues
should avoid these foods or eat them in very small amounts.

Call me to find out if kohlrabi is your next favorite superfood!
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
