The Green Machine Smoothie
The two-part segment in November Superfood day 6 is here! I am bringing this tasty and healthy green smoothie to the table. Whenever I feel that I need a good kick of green in my diet, I make this. Spinach is my superfood ingredient and it is a favorite of mine.
The benefits of spinach are many but here are a few I can name.
Keeps your heart healthy. Spinach has omega 3 fatty acids, and that helps keep the lipid levels going good.
It boosts bone health. Spinach is packed with calcium, and therefore it helps strengthen your bones.
A good source of fiber. Just 1 cup of spinach offers 4.3 grams of fiber.
Keeping your nails and hair healthy. Spinach is packed with vitamins A & C.
