Eat Your Veggies

 Looking at that list of ingredients may make this recipe seem a trifle daunting; but fear not! The beauty of this recipe is that all the ingredients are raw - there's no cooking involved. Your only job is to select the most beautiful, delicious vegetables you can, and then let them speak simply and boldly for themselves. 


Powerful Perks

  Cucumbers can aid in weight-loss. Radishes are a great source of vitamin C. Red Bell Peppers, in addition, contain more than 200% of your daily vitamin C intake! Olives are packed with vitamin E and other powerful antioxidants. Tomatoes too, being packed with lycopene, are another major dietary source of antioxidants. The onions not only support healthy digestion, but they also elevate the nutritional efficacy of the tomatoes in the recipe! Even the sumac acts as an anti-microbial and anti-fungal spice, which can help with skin inflammation. It's also been shown to be effective in regulating cholesterol and reducing blood sugar. 

These powerful perks are not unique to this specific set of vegetables. Any and all vegetables, fruits, nuts and fungi have their own elaborate matrix of valuable vitamins, nutrients and minerals. When we ingest them whole (as opposed to juices), and as nature intended them, we are consuming a carefully designed delivery system of dietary power-houses.

A Note on the Vinaigrette

Grapefruit is a true spectacle of nature. When incorporated in our diets they can benefit our immune system, promote appetite control, improve heart health and they're high in anti-oxidants. Importantly here, in this recipe, the flavor of grapefruit really goes a long way in contrasting with and complimenting the flavor of the raw vegetables. Sweet, sour, and slightly bitter, grapefruit alone can hit 3 out of 5 of our flavor receptors (our tastebuds also pick up salty and umami, or savoriness).

We knew we wanted to pair a grapefruit vinaigrette with this recipe, but we were wondering if there was anyway to get that beautiful, vibrant grapefruit scent and flavor while simultaneously cutting back on the sugars found in the fruit. 

That's where our Grapefruit Kush terpene blend comes in. We can increase the intensity and vibrancy of the grapefruit flavor and aroma without adding additional sugars.
