Spinach seems to be one of the healthiest greens. It contains a wealth of nutrition:
- Beta carotene
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin K
But, guess what?
Not everyone likes spinach. Including me.
I know that Popeye loved spinach and he ate it right out of the can. Yuck, gross!
For me, spinach is bleaghhhhhhh…
Unless, it’s sauteed with garlic, olive oil and/or butter and salt.
And, as an added bonus, many of the nutrients in cooked spinach are actually more bio-available to the body.
Now, that’s a delicious and nutritious green I can get down with!
Saute your spinach and enjoy the recipe!
