My Kind Of Green!

Monday, January 20, 2014

2 Cups fresh chopped spinach, sauteed with 1 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil = 75 calories

Dairy isn't the only way to get calcium; this leafy green is a great source, too. It also contains folate, which has been linked to a lower risk of stroke and ovarian cancer.

Personally, I love spinach fresh in salads, on sandwiches and absolutely love it in quiche!

    Quiche is so good for you!! It has so much nutritional value. I love it too. I eat it in a salad instead of lettuce.

    I love spinach on salads and in sandwiches too - I should remember to add a bit to my eggs for breakfast.
