Why Spinach is the Perfect Addition to any Soup
Spinach is a green leafy vegetable that is rich in vitamins and minerals. One cup of spinach contains more than half the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, C, K, folate, and magnesium. It also has an extremely high concentration of antioxidants which help to reduce inflammation in the body.
The best way to cook spinach is to just add it to a soup or any other dish that you are making. This will ensure that you retain all the nutrients and not lose any vitamins or minerals while cooking. You can also add it raw into salads or sandwiches as a healthy side dish.
