spinach recipesNow I know I don’t need to tell you about the health benefits of spinach. But I will anyway!

Spinach is packed with calcium, vitamins A and C, fiber, folic acid, magnesium, flavonoids and lutein and is known to assist in strengthening bones, and can aid in the control of certain cancers, specifically colon, lung and breast cancer.

The folate found in spinach is known to lower a protein that damages arteries and can also protect against heart disease.

And there’s one other thing … but I just forgot what it was … oh, that’s right … the flavonoids help protect against memory loss as we age.

And there’s one more reason why we should eat spinach … because it just tastes so darned good!
