Spinach

Does anyone remember Popeye the Sailor Man and his can of Spinach?  He would need to help Olive Oil so he’d open up his can and eat his spinach.  Nothing could stop him after that!  Did you ever wonder why the creator of the show chose spinach?

Spinach is a leafy green that is packed with good nutrients for our bodies. You can large leafed or baby spinach.  Use it in a smoothie, make a salad, steam it or cook it on the stove with a little olive oil and garlic.   The health benefits are many.

Potassium – helps to lower blood pressure

Lutein – antioxidant that helps with macular degeneration and cataracts.  Lutein has also been shown to help improve verbal fluency, memory, reasoning ability and processing speed.

Vitamin K – one cup has the recommended daily amount and is great for bone health. Vitamin A –  helps hydrate your skin

Vitamin C – good for your immune system

Iron – an excellent source of iron

Fiber – spinach is full of fiber. (Be careful if you have to watch your fiber intake)

How you eat spinach can affect the nutrients your body gets.  Eating it raw in a salad or using it in a smoothie will get you the most nutrients. You can steam it or cook it on the stove too but overcooking it will take away some nutrients. Try enjoying spinach in different ways for the most benefits!

Private Home Health Care would like you to check out healthy smoothies on Yummly.com.  There is one with pineapple and spinach that looks delicious.  Add in a scoop of JuicePlus Vanilla Complete and you’ll add protein to the benefits!

    Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it wont fail me as much as this one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read through, however I genuinely thought youd have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
