Spinach isiron-rich, as every admirer of Popeye knows. Orthodox nutritionist, however, point out crushingly that the iron in cooked spinach is poorly absorbed by the body. This is because spinach has high levels of oxalic acid, which interact with magnesium and calcium to carry it out of the body in the form of insoluble salts. Spinach is also rich in uric acid, so it is best avoided by the gouty and the rheumatic.
Spinach is very rich in chlorophyll so anaemia patients or those suffering from fatigue and mental strain should eat plenty of it, raw, in the form of salad.
Cancer patients or those at risk from cancer such as heavy smokers, should include plenty of raw spinach in their diets,too. Cancer research is increasingly focusing on the whole spectrum of carotenoids -not just beta-carotene in dark green or brightly coloured fruits and vegetables, and spinach is more highly endowed with those potential cancer – fighters than even carrots.
In population studies quoted by Jean Carper, dark green vegetables, with spinach at the top of the list, are strongly protective against cancer.
I have very fast and tasty omelette recipe with raw spinach to try.
Make sure you use free- range eggs. Free from unwanted chemicals and lower in cholesterol than battery – farmed eggs. For all but a tiny minority of people, the cholesterol in eggs does not affect blood cholesterol. Eggs are easily digested and supply protein, zinc, B vitamins, and other nutrients.
I cannot say how many eggs you want to use for your omelette. This really depends on the size of your frypan and the size of omelette you want to do. Omelette can be easily stored in the fridge for another day.
This recipe is ideal for breakfast, lunch box, dinner! All in one 😀
All you need is:
– Washed spinach (3 handfuls)
– Spring onions (finely chopped)
– 5-6 eggs
1. Heat the fry pan (if you have a nonstick one you don’t need to use oil, if not use coconut oil or ghee)
2. In a large bowl beat the eggs and add spinach and spring onions.
3. Transfer everything to the frypan and stiring combine spinach with eggs.
4. Leave on medium heat and mix little bit more. Cover with a lid for 2-3min.
5. Place a big plate on the frypan covering your omelette and turn upside down. You omelette should be done on one side.
6. Slide the omelette to the frypan again to cook another side.
7. After 1-2 min your spinach omelette is done.
- Spinach should be half cooked and omelette dense.
If you don’t like spinach, add some cheese into it and will taste amazing!
Enjoy your dish and improve your health.
I love a combination with tomato juice worthy to give it ago
