A Girl & Her Food: Watercress Detox Soup #MeatlessMonday #CleanEating #SpringCleanse


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 
Cancer fighting agents
Aids in digestion and weight loss 

Watercress Soup

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 

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!

    Nike Jordan Blue White Black, Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has retracted his endorsement of Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur for a California House seat, less than 24 hours after making it following a torrential backlash over Uygur's "sexism."Sanders quietly withdrew his endorsement on Friday, referencing what appeared to be a face saving move by the creator of the progressive news outlet on Friday. However, our movement is bigger than any one person. I hear my supporters who were frustrated and understand their concerns.

    Singapore is highly dependent on foreign labor for its prosperity, for the building of its infrastructure and for many essential services. As the borders between Singapore and Malaysia shut, with movement controlled by the Malaysian government, thousands of migrants crossed the causeway into Singapore from Johor, one of the busiest border crossings in the world, with 350,000 travelers passing the checkpoints daily.Too many migrant workers who crossed the border every day found themselves stranded and homeless as the cost of even the cheapest room was far too expensive for them. The Singapore government, civil society, and employers did their best to provide temporary shelter and food.But this was not the reason for the surge in local transmissions. {tag: Yeezy White Sneakers}
