Spinach – Extremely nutrient dense!!
Packed full of Vitamin K, C, manganese, magnesium, and twice as much iron as any other veg!
Spinach is alkaline producing, helping to regulate body PH and contains a lutein – promoting healthy vision and protection against macular degeneration.
When choosing your spinach - the darker the better as deeper colour = higher nutrients! Store in the fridge and do not wash to avoid soggyness - if buying in bags, add a sheet of kitchen roll to soak up any excess moisture and keep the crispiness.
Wash immediately before use and enjoy raw in salads and smoothies or my favourite - spinach pesto!
Infact spinach is so versatile can be shredded and stired into almost any dish!
Match made in heaven - Team up with lemon, egg, onion, garlic, mushrooms or nutmeg!
Those with gout or kidney stones should avoid excessive consumption
