Unless you have Popeye DNA, chances are that you will not like spinach. But there are two ways that spinach can be made palatable.
Loaded with iron and folate (a B vitamin), a cup of spinach only has 41 calories and 0 grams of fat.
All this is nice and dandy, but how can it be eaten?
Raw spinach makes for a great salad. Seriously, all you have to do is take it, wash it, drain it, and then cut the excess stems.
At this point, take the juice of a lemon or lime, add some oil and vinegar and you have a great, healthy salad. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and you will see that it tastes decent.
Another alternative is to have it cooked. Take some spinach and combine it in chicken broth. The chicken broth will take over the taste but at least you will have combined some spinach in your diet, even though it is healthier raw…
Nuts contain vitamin E, fend off heart disease and cancer and are quite tasty. They are fairly heavy in fat though, so eat them by the handful and not the bowlful. A perfect snack to make class go by faster when time seems to stand still.
Very much like spinach, broccoli is not the most appreciated vegetable out there. But it is rather healthy as you can imagine. Broccoli helps defend against cancer and is most healthy when cooked light and chewed hard.
It is great raw with a light dressing and as a steamed side order with sausages, chicken or steak.
Oats help reduce cholesterol. They can be eaten raw in granola or cooked. If you are trying to lose weight and you find that you eat often, oats are good as they make you feel full even if you can eat a horse.
