A run for it’s money!

In the produce aisle, we often find ourselves in deer-in-headlights mode when we get to the greens — there are just so many options. Lately, kale has been getting loads of attention for being a vitamin-and nutrient-Super Food.  But, aesthetically, we’re drawn to watercress, with its pretty, petite leaves.

Turns out, watercress gives kale a run for its money. In fact, while much more research is needed, a recent study found that watercress might reduce your risk of breast cancer, thanks to a compound that inhibits a protein related to tumor growth.

In addition to the compound in this study, a cup of watercress contains plenty of vitamins A and C and boasts an entire day’s worth of vitamin K, a nutrient that helps keep your bones strong and your heart healthy — and just four calories.

It is also a mild diuretic, which can help you shed excess fluid.

Getting all of the nutrients and vitamins that your body needs can be quite a challenge.
