Spinach. What can I say?! You either love it or you have it, there’s no in-between.
I, myself, am on the LOVE side for sure. I love everything spinach! Regardless if we’re talking about fresh baby spinach leaves, a creamy spinach dip, spinach cream used as a filling for an omelette or pastries, I’m all ready to stuff my face in it!
Regardless if you love spinach or you dislike it profoundly, I’m sure my list of recipes below will at least leave you wondering if not impress you completely. Trust me, you’ll find some really unexpected recipes with spinach below, so I hope you’re ready for it!
Spinach is a wonderful green leafy vegetable and, if you’re following a vegan diet, you can consider it a superfood as well. Spinach is rich in protein, so you might want to keep it close to your heart, my friends! After all, we all know how important proteins are in a vegan diet, right? Except for this, here are some super-duper important health benefits of spinach:
- Spinach is low in calories – yes, sir!
- Spinach can help boosting the immune system – no more common colds for me!
- Spinach can actually help you hydrate. Sounds weird, right? Well, it’s true! There’s so much water in spinach that it really hydrates your body. No joke here.
- It lowers the level of our hunger hormone. So, even if you buy a BIG bag of spinach and you only end up with a cup of sauteed spinach after you put it in a pan (that’s funny, I know), a little spinach goes a long way in cutting our appetite!
- Spinach is rich in calcium, vitamin K and manganese – all of them help us prevent osteoporosis.
Do I need to add more? Because I still have some aces up my sleeve for you! But I think the information above is more than enough to convince you to consume more spinach in your day-to-day diet, even if you’re not in love with it.
And if you are indeed in love with it, I’m sure you want to start experimenting with some new, exciting recipes, right?
