I love spinach because it is so versatile. I'm going to try it in eggs now.

I don't care for cooked spinach, just can't get past the smell. I do use it in lasagna though. I mainly use 1 cup in my morning smoothie.

I have always liked spinach, even the kind in a can!!! But I have learned a lot from this article and love the ideas others have included.
On Aldi's cream cheese package I found a great recipe for three cheese pasta containing a whole bag of spinach and it is not too high in calories as the amount of cheeses is well controlled. Maybe I should post that recipe!

I love to add spinach to salads and sandwiches. It's more flavorful than plain lettuce.

Spinach is definitely versatile. I use it as follows:

1/4 to 1/2 c. of spinach in my protein smoothies
1/4 to 1/2 c. of spinach and feta cheese omelet
Spinach leaves added to pizza on a pita;
1c. of spinach to 2 c. of romaine lettuce for my salad which allows me to get two servings of veggies at one setting.

I love spinach too and have discovered it's a very low calorie topping for homemade pizza. I marinate it in balsamic vinegar with a bit of oil (usually from the anchovy can) and a touch of salt and pepper. Sometimes I add mushrooms too. The marinade makes it a bit moist so the pizza isn't too dried out. This means I can eat homemade pizza every week and still stay within my goals.

One of my favorite vegetables. For breakfast, cook some in a little olive oil with onions and red bell peppers, and Mrs. Dash and then pour a scrambled egg over it and cook for a little while -- YUMMO.

I go through 2-3 bags a baby spinach a week. I add it to everything- sandwiches & wraps, eggs, pasta dishes & soups. Love it!!

Baby spinach scrambled into a couple of eggs with a dash of feta cheese is my favorite breakfast!

When I was growing up, the only way we ate spinach was the stuff in a can. Raw spinach was quite an eye-opener when I discovered it as an adult - I love it! When we get a lot in the spring, i have two favorite dishes to cook that use it up: spanokorizo (a greek dish - lots of spinach and some rice as binder), and a spanish-style spinach with chickpeas. Both of them use quite a bit of olive oil, so not very low-fat, but they are delicious and nutritious!

For years I didn't like this vegetable but have learned to incorporate some raw into my salads. Not sure I'll ever like it cooked though - its very bitter. Also has high levels of oxalic acid and too much can be a problem for some people. Am going to start putting some in my smoothies now and then to see if covering up the flavor with banana might help and take more antioxidant ingredients with it.
