Healthy spaghetti with dry tomatoes, olives and radish leaves
It is possible to eat healthy, tasty and with what is in the kitchen! The proof is given by the recipe of today, a powerful source of vitamins, mineral salts, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory substances, thanks to the dry tomatoes, garlic, olives and radish leaves, a very special ingredient. In fact, as shown by scientific studies, radish leaves contain as much antioxidants as they are contained in green tea (Luo et al, Biomed Pharmacother, 2018)! The anti-inflammatory substances are then useful to fight the state of inflammation that, if it lasts for a long time and becomes chronic, may weaken the immune system.

1 clove of garlic
1 bunch of radish leaves
10 dry tomatoes
1 tablespoon of green or black pitted olives
1 tablespoon of shelled walnuts
