It's spring and radishes are in season! Although radishes are not found in tons of recipes, they have many more things going for them than most people think. Other than providing the perfect amount of crisp and flavor to a salad, radishes are surprisingly nutritious. Radishes contain a high number of vitamins, including vitamin C, folic acid, B6, K and riboflavin. One cup of radishes contains 30% of your recommended daily Vitamin C allowance. They also contain a high amount of minerals, such as calcium, zinc, potassium and magnesium. Radishes are very low on the calorie front- one cup of sliced radishes has only about 19 calories in it. Not only that, but radishes have a high water content, making you feel more satiated.


So try out this radish recipe for a light but satisfying salad.

This video is one of the all time top workout videos on YouTube. It is a killer 8 minute abs workout with over 29 million views. But the style is different from almost every other type of workout video. Why? Its obvious when you play it, but for those just getting introduced to Passion4Profession, its not a real person. You follow along an animated instructor with a computerized voice. There is something rhythmic and soothing about the voice, but it is hard to get used to. 


Try it out and tell us what you think of the style. Even if you don't like the style, you will certainly get an ab ripping workout in!
