Juice! Sweet & Sour Watercress

October 10, 2012

For my morning pick-me-up, I  made this juice yesterday which was pretty yummy so I’m sharing. I call it sweet and sour because the lime and carrot and apple play well together. Over the weekend I made a version of this without carrot and apple and with more cucumber and a little ginger.  That one is more medicinal, but still good for those that can handle greens straight up. I’ve been in love with watercress for awhile so there is already a past blog post on some of the groovy nutrients watercress provides. Read here if you missed it, and also get another juice recipe with watercress in it.

For those dealing with acne, eczema, or other skin irritations, making a juice with watercress will do your body good. Watercress is full of antioxidants, great for anti-aging, and is considered a liver tonic, which is part of why your vegan glow will get a boost when you consume it. Don’t forget watercress is also a great addition to a salad when you get bored of the same ol’ greens. Mix it up by tossing in some watercress, and the peppery taste will literally spice up your life a bit. –XoXo Raw Girl

  1. Hey, I am just curious if you use a juicer or blender. I have actually been using a blender, but obviously my choice of vegetables is limited, so I have been thinking about a juicer.The blender was cheaper so that was my first choice and now wondering if I should “upgrade”.
    Right now I actually make good juices with the blender using, kale, cucumbers, bananas, mangos, and just about anything else soft. But obviously I can not juice carrots.
    Do you use a juicer?

  2. Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thanks, However I am going through issues with your RSS. I don’t understand why I can’t join it. Is there anybody else getting the same RSS issues? Anybody who knows the solution can you kindly respond? Thanks!!
