  • I love spinach. I stopped using lettuce. I use spinach and kale or spinach and arugula for my greens in salad.
  • Spinach in a frittata or omelet is one of my favorite ways to start my day with some veggies, of course there are mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and other veggies in there too.
  • I love spinach because it is so versatile. I'm going to try it in eggs now.
  • I cook it and put it in my egg in the morning along with Tomato. I also add it to my Lean Cuisine's to get anothe veggie in my day.

    I love spinach!!!
  • 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.
  • "There are only so many spinach salads you can eat in a week....."

    I usually eat a spinich salad 7 nights a week LoL
  • 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.
    What I love most about spinach is you can put it in anything....literally!!!!
  • 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!
