Spinach Isn't Just For Popeye...

We all know the Popeye consumed more spinach in one day then most of us do in 6 months, however he did for good reason.

Not only does spinach (any other leafy green for that matter) pack a mean nutrient dense punch, but it more importantly provides protection against arthritis, colon cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis. Spinach is a great food to incorporate into your every day diet- we're talking Iron, Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Calcium, Fiber, Potassium (the list goes on and on). Oh.... and one cup only racks up a measley 40 calories.

Not a big spinach fan? You don't have to always eat it raw. Try adding spinach to your next egg scrable or homemade lasagna- you'll hardly be able to taste it and the pros definitely outweight any cons...

I must say that when i was little, i did not like spinach, it was always bitter to me. But, now I just eat more and more. I get it frozen and boil it a little bit, drain the water out and pour butter in it and mashed it up. Very good, you should try it. You have great blog!

I am your new follower from MBC.
