Nutrition facts and recipes from one of nature's best superfoods.
Spinach : Nutrition facts and recipes about the world's most accessible and versatile superfood.
Welcome. My name is Trevor Johnson and I'm here to improve your health and your quality of life with research-based education and nutrition facts about spinach. Popeye was not the only believer in the plentiful benefits of spinach. Nutritionists and dieticians, and increasingly the medical profession as a whole have come to understand that spinach truly is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. A daily spinach recipe in your diet is a vital part of your ongoing health and vitality.
Spinach is low in calories, yet extremely high in vitamins, minerals and other phytonutrients (natural plant chemicals with human nutritional value.).
Unlike a handful of other nutrient-dense health foods (such as aloe vera and spirulina, for example), spinach is readily accessible to all, available almost everywhere in the world today as a whole food, rather than only as a processed supplement, and is a low priced vegetable that everyone can afford - or even grow spinach in your own back yard. It can be used in a remarkably wide range of healthy spinach recipes.
The modern, Western diet has changed dramatically over the past century and with those changes have come a raft of degenerative diseases. Some of these diseases were never before known. Others are now occurring far more commonly and at younger ages than in generations past.
It is no co-incidence that our changed diet and the rise of these diseases go hand-in-hand.
One of those changes has been that grain products have become one of the dominant sources of caloric intake today, despite being relatively low in nutrient value.
On the other hand, the western diet today contains only 40% of the volume of vegetables, such as spinach, than it did a century ago.
I invite you to study the facts and the spinach benefits presented on this web site, then do yourself a favour. Do your whole family a favour. Adopt a new motto and live it as much as you find practical. That new motto is:
"Replace grains with greens...."
....and the greatest of the green vegetables is spinach. (Other dark green leafy vegetables such as broccoli and kale rank close behind and should also become a regular part of your dietary improvements.)
Spinach is versatile and can be eaten cooked as a vegetable, raw in salads (a superior alternative to low nutrient iceberg lettuce) and in many other recipe forms.
Make a spinach recipe a daily part of your life, starting today. Your body will thank you for it.
