Saturday’s Food For Thought

Spinach is Saturday’s Food For Thought. 

I thought I would include one of my super favorite vegetables in tonight’s post. Spinach is such a versatile vegetable and it provides many nutrients. Read below for some great benefits of spinach.

Benefits Of Spinach

  • Cooking spinach actually increases its health benefits! Yes this is true. Eating 1/2 a cup of cooked spinach will give you twice as much nutrients vs 1 cup of raw spinach. (The reason being, the body can not break down the ingredients while eating raw spinach.)
  • Taking spinach in juice form is the healthiest way to consume it. This is why you need to try my healthy smoothie drink.   https://kouzounaskitchen.com/2014/02/15/food-challenges/
  • It’s best to eat spinach fresh, and try to pick organic spinach at the grocery store. (Reason for this is, they pack spinach with pesticides.)
  • Did you know spinach helps flush out toxins out of your body?!
  • Spinach has an abundance of vitamins and minerals that help your skin come back to life. Eating spinach on a regular basis has proven to help improve skin health dramatically.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
