This can be a very personal preference, but there are some differences in if you eat them cooked or raw. When a radish is cooked the favors become quite more subtle. In this pan fried radishes recipe the flavors definitely become more tender and juicy.

Healthy Fats and Radishes

Let’s get back to those healthy fats I was talking about. We get about as healthy of butter as is possible for our families budget and someday I am eager to purchase grass fed and organic butter. For now we purchase what we can and leave the rest in God’s hands. You can also substitute the butter with coconut oil, MCT oil, or Ghee (I have not tried this brand yet, but like it’s quality).The goal is to choose a fat that will nourish your body.
