In love with spinazie...

Spinach is a super healthy vegetable. I put spinach in my breakfast smoothie but often I also use it in other dishes such as soups,, salads or pasta. For example, this recipe for vegan saag 'paneer' contains a bomb of spinach!

Period? Eat spinach!

This green leafy vegetable contains proteins, minerals & vitamins. What spinach is probably best known for is the high iron content. I recommend eating spinach for women who are confronted with a heavy menstrual period. Eating this during this period is important for increasing energy, as well as for preventing anemia.

Further health benefits of eating spinach include lowering blood pressure and improving bone quality.

Today I made a spinach bomb with spicy tempeh.

I try to let Jane involve with my cooking as much as I can. I think it is very important that she knows where her food comes from and how everything tastes and smells like. I believe because of this she always want to try everything and she is very curious.
