Why spinach is good for your health
Spinach is something I often add to recipes as it is full of iron and so good for you. I am often anaemic due to heavy monthly periods and being vegetarian. That said I have been much better and have not needed any iron tablets since I started increasing my green vegetables, particularly spinach. This spinach and pea frittata is a favourite of mine for a meal and also as a snack.
Spinach is very low in calories but high in many nutrients. An excellent source of vitamin c, vitamin a, vitamin k along with many others. It really is something of a superfood. With it shrinking a lot during cooking due to the high water content you can easily eat more than you realise and reportedly 100g raw of spinach contains 25 kcal and 2.8g of protein. Definitely something worth adding where you can to meals.
How to use spinach
Whilst some recipes call for spinach, like this one or this salad, others are easy to add spinach to without much change in taste. I regularly add these frozen blocks of spinach to things like stir fry, pasta dishes or any curries. Adding a few blocks rarely changes the taste and if little eyes notice and ask (which is unlikely) it could be passed off as “tasty herbs” if you don’t want to admit to there being spinach!
If you enjoy salad why not add some spinach leaves to your salad for extra nutrients? It is a great bed for something like sweetcorn frittata too.
