Weight Loss with Spinach!

Ok, stayin’ steady is better than going up! I’ve spent a lot of time over the past couple of days thinking through this whole weight loss thing. Right now, it’s all about grace (I’ll talk a bit about that on Wednesday) but I’m feeling the itch to push into high gear here. There are some things I need to wrap up, first – which are being wrapped! – and these things will free up a chunk of my time, which is great. When that time is freed up, I will be able to do some serious focusing here, and I’m looking forward to that! Watch for that over the next couple of weeks.

So, changing the subject….

Let’s take a look at this week’s superfood:  SPINACH!  Now I LOVE spinach, however you want to serve it – creamed, raw, steamed, tossed, chopped, whatever.  I’ve loved spinach my whole life, and was a HUGE fan of Popeye when I was very young.

Let’s see why spinach is so very good for us:

Spinach is loaded with

It helps to:

  • control cancer (especially colon, lung and breast cancers)
  • protect against heart disease and
  • prevents cataracts, as well as age related macular degeneration

Now, that’s not bad!

Need some great ideas for serving it?  A friend shared this recipe with me on Facebook – hides the spinach really well, I hear:

Spinach Smoothie!
2 C fresh spinach
1 C frozen blueberries
1 banana
1/2 C yogurt
1/4 C pineapple
1/4 c frozen cherries (or not, if you don’t have them!)
1/4 C orange juice (or an orange, for more fiber)
mix it all up and top it with fruit if you want, but nobody will ever know there’s spinach in it!
(Oh, and apparently the recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens, but I don’t have any other details on it – sorry! They have more smoothie recipes here)

Now that sounds yummy!  Give it a try and post your comments below!
