Radicchio & White Bean Salad
3 Servings (2 cups/serving)
Why I love this recipe so much:
It contains radicchio- tell me the last time you had that at home!
The health benefits are endless. Here are just a few:
Aids in the stimulation of bile which helps regulate digestion and assist in the maintenance of liver health.
Loads of antioxidants, fiber, vitamin K
May have anti parasitic properties
It also helps introduce new plant foods into your weekly routine, which helps with a more diverse gut microbiome, which can help with overall weight loss- win/win!
I make this as a side with my protein and feel very satisfied- let me know if you make it too!
