Watercress is truly one of my FAVORITE super super foods! My first time being vegan some 20 years ago, I ate watercress like it was candy, back then with garlic, olive oil, sliced onions, and raw apple cider vinegar marinade. Today, I eat it mostly raw with a dabble of salt, organic cold pressed olive oil, or nothing at all. The juicing is what somewhat close to a wheatgrass shot. Holy Cow nasty, but ohh so good for the cells and spirit!
Today, I almost worship Watercress for the many healing properties and nutrients.
Here’s a very quick green juice that is packed with vitamins, aminos and minerals!
