Enjoy Kohlrabi

This delicious bulbous vegetable has a radish like bite, a crisp turnipy texture, and a sweet cucumber taste. Kohlrabi improves energy circulation and eases stagnancy; it reduces damp conditions and so is effective for edema, candida, and viral conditions. It helps stabilize blood sugar imbalances and is used for hypoglycemia and diabetes. It is an excellent source of vitamin C and potassium. Kohlrabi is high in fiber and low in calories. Remove the rough skin before or after cooking.  Raw and sliced thin, kohlrabi is a delicious crudite served with a vegetable dip or in salads. It can be steamed, stir-fried, baked, braised, added to soups and stews, or stuffed.
