Amos' Foodie Friday - Watercress

Amos' Foodie Friday (because no one is as obsessed with food as Amos) As much as I enjoy eating (just ask my mom) I’m always on the look-out for foods that give me more bang for my buck and keep me in swimsuit shape. This month the CDCP (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) released their list of Powerhouse Fruits and Vegetables (PFV), foods most strongly associated with reduced chronic disease risk, based on their nutrient density. Sitting in the #1 spot…WATERCRESS! Who knew? Click on the link and scroll down to Table 2 for the full listing. http://www.cdc.gov/pcd/issues/2014/13_0390.htm I’m going across the street to Whole Foods to grab some watercress – think I’ll add it to my morning smoothie! Keep an eye out for future Foodie Friday tips. Suggestions welcome, dog treats appreciated. Happy Friday
