Super-food spinach

Spinach is such a great vegetable. You can put the tender leaves raw in a salad, or quickly boil in very little water to accompany almost any cooked dish.

Cancer research has demonstrated that spinach contains even more protective carotenoids than other dark green or brightly coloured fruit and vegetables. Spinach is good for the eyes and is rich in folic acid and iron. It’s a definite dietary requirement for pregnant women

A pile of quickly steamed spinach with a poached egg on top is a delicious snack. Do source your spinach organically.
