Watercress Detox Soup #MeatlessMonday #CleanEating #SpringCleanse







Spring is here, so it means I am on a flab to fab journey. To be honest that's the truth, but I was recently diagnosed with rosacea so it's been my #1 priority to cure naturally! 


In order to be healthy on the outside you have to be healthy on the inside.  Don't you agree?  


Over the past several months, I have been under a lot of stress and anxiety with my dog, Syrus, being sick and passing.  I exposed my body to triggers that could have caused this rosacea outbreak. We know that stress and poor diet do your body no good. 

After the Easter and Passover celebrations, I have been focusing on being
super duper fly.... in a healthy way.  
To start my flab to fab journey aka Spring cleaning of my body, I did a Epsom salt and olive oil liver detox. It was tough but yet amazing at the same time! I will share ALL the nitty gritty (no pun intended!) with you tomorrow.
As being A girl & her food, I still have to attend events, dinners and restaurant previews because this is what I do. But, meanwhile when I am at home, cooking, I will be diligent about what goes into my body.  I will be the mean green anti-rosacea machine. 
Speaking of greens, many people don't know that watercress is the BEST detoxifying food.  I will be throwing it into soups, salads, juices and smoothies and so should you! 

Benefits of Watercress:

Currently is in season so you can find it easily at your local market
Flushes toxins out of the body
Filled with vitamins like B, E, C, zinc and potassium-It has more vitamin c than an orange! 
High in fiber so its a natural diuretic 
Great for the skin as it helps prevent wrinkles 
Filled with iron and calcium 
Anti-inflammatory
Cancer fighting agents
Aids in digestion and weight loss 







Watercress Soup

ingredients 
1 tablespoon coconut oil 
3 garlic cloves, smashed
1 small onion, roughly chopped
3 cups of homemade bone broth (or stock) 
1 1/2 cup of water 2 bunches watercress, roughly chopped (reserve some watercress as a garnish)
a handful of organic spinach, roughly chopped
Fresh ground pepper and salt 

preparation
Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the oil.  Toss in the onion and garlic, and cook until sizzling and fragrant, about 1 minute.  Add the bone broth and water and bring to a gentle boil.  Reduce to a simmer for about 1 minute.  Stir in the watercress and spinach. Return to a gentle boil. Reduce to a simmer.  Season to taste with fresh ground pepper and salt. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly before transferring the soup in the blender.  Puree on high for about 1 minute until smooth.  Pour the watercress soup into the bowls, garnish with fresh watercress and serve. Enjoy!
