You may be wondering, "why watercress and not another green?" Well, if you've been hanging around here awhile, you know that we love watercress for multiple reasons. The number one reason being the versatility of the ingredient. One thing a good meal prepper loves is an ingredient that can be purchased and used in multiple recipes. We were crushing on the watercress pesto last month!
On top of being versatile and very delicious, there are also a ton of health benefits to watercress. We shared our top 6 favorites benefits in this post here!
But my macros!
Don't worry! Not only is watercress full of nutrients and delicious, but it’s very low in calories and contains almost no carbs. One cup of watercress has only 0.4g of carbs and 4 calories. This makes it an excellent choice for any dietary type; vegan, vegetarian, whole30, paleo, keto, low carb, gluten-free, etc. Despite its low-calorie count, watercress still manages to pack in 21% of your Vitamin A and 24% of your Vitamin C for the day. This means that you can freely use watercress without having much of a calorie impact on your meals at all! Hello, volume eating!
