Watercress, a beautifier

Watercress can help make your hair, skin and nails look fab.  Thanks to the veggies rich stores of zinc, it stimulates protein and collagen renewal to keep skin free of acne and your nails strong; Vitamin A which boosts skin cell production to ward off lines; and calcium which is a building block for hair, nails and teeth.  The greens also contain glucosinolates, compounds that help skin maintain a vibrant glow.

A sure way to enjoy the greens is to whip up a Watercress Pesto. Just puree the leaves wsith olive oil, garlic and pine nuts or walnuts, and Parmesan cheese. It's great for marinades, a Bruschetta topping or in cold or hot pasta dishes.
