a blog that explores
the HEART–core, essence, sum
of HEALTH– the condition of body and mind
written by a family physician, Aletha Cress Oglesby, M.D.
Watercress is a fast growing, perennial, edible, leafy green plant that grows around slow moving water like springs and streams.
Watercress is know to be nutritious, healing and preventative because it contains several important vitamins and minerals, including Vitamins A, C and K, calcium, potassium and copper.
Watercress has a “tangy, peppery, spicy or pungent flavor”.
