Endives

Endives are very versatile plants that you may associate as a root that is used as a common alternative to coffee. Not only is the root (also known as chicory) edible but so are the leaves of the endive plant! The leaves are very hearty and have a slightly bitter flavor making them ideal for grilling or as an addition to a salad.
Endives are not only delicious but also detoxifying and metabolism-regulating. They are rich in potassium, folic acid, zinc, and also contains vitamins A, B and C.
According to the motto “bitter, please”, the Metabolic Balance program recommends including more bitter foods in your diet to regulate your metabolism and digestion in a completely natural way. Adding endives to different meals such as salads can do just that!
