Spinach is one of the most eclectic of the dark, leafy green family despite the popularity of Kale. The list of vitamins it provides is loaded with significant nutrients like vitamins K, B1, B2, C, and E. It’s full of nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin, which both have benefits to eye health. Spinach is packed with flavonoids that contribute to antioxidant protection for your body. Also, a cup of spinach has only 30 calories and gives the body a boost of magnesium, manganese, and iron.
Eat it fresh to get the most out of the vegetable, but it’s good to have fun with such a versatile leaf. Everything from smoothies to Quiche, here are some tasty recipes that will revamp your love for spinach.
