 Watercress, Avocado And Lime Smoothie. Hello friends. Happy Monday. I hope you are keeping well?

With the festive season over, a new year stretches ahead full of good intentions. With the determination to exercise and eat more healthily key resolutions for many.

How good to know then that to keep the second half of this promise is relatively easy. With the help of some delicious new recipes featuring the original superfood – watercress.

Watercress (an 80g bag is available for as little as £1 from supermarkets nationwide). It is the ‘star’ of smoothies, salads, soups and so much more. Boasting an incredible 50 vital vitamins and minerals, gram for gram watercress contains more calcium than milk.

More Vitamin C than oranges, more folate than a banana and more Vitamin E than broccoli. Watercress is a powerhouse of goodness.

But, more than that, over a decade’s worth of medical research has shown powerful links between watercress and the prevention of cancer.

As well as the reduction of exercise-induced DNA damage – something that could prove useful if you’re hitting the new year gym too.

So, go ahead, enjoy this great tasting, healthy watercress recipe. Safe in the knowledge you’re keeping your word and on the way to a healthier you.
