Spinach has so many vitamins and minerals and is loaded with flavonoids which act as antioxidants, protecting the body from free radicals. Free radicals are mostly responsible for aging and tissue damage and have been linked to nearly every disease. The more antioxidants we consume the more free radicals we fight off!!!

One of my favorite things to do with spinach is to buy a whole bunch at Costco(always try to buy ORGANIC SPINACH) and freeze it in zip lock bags.

Here is my recipe for a spinach protein shake

about 1 cup of ice
about 1 cup of almond milk
1 scoop of protein powder
1-2 cups of frozen spinach
1/2 banana

Here is another spinach shake recipe for little kids when they don't eat very much during the day :)

about 1/2 cup ice
about 1 cup milk
1 package of regular carnation instant breakfast
1-2 cups spinach
