My love affair...with spinach

Thank you for....























Keeping my bones strong (calcium and Vitamin K)...























Helping my eyesight (beta-carotene) because it needs all the help it can get...





















Strengthening my heart and other muscles (C0-Q10)....






















Stabilizing my blood pressure (high potassium, low sodium)....






















Allowing me to concentrate (iron)....























Protecting my skin from harmful UV rays (phytonutrients).....
























And all the other wonderful things you do.

You're the best and I love ya!

XOXO

So tell me, do you have a food that you eat almost daily that you want to thank?

  1. If the grocery shopping is done, I'll eat a couple bites of cheesecake every morning after breakfast. So, I'd like to thank cheesecake for keeping me happy. Not so much healthy, though. :-)

  4. I love spinach and all of it's benefits. I also love peanut butter and bananas. I could not get through the day without a serving of peanut butter and a banana. They are two of my very favorites!

  7. I just recently re-discovered how delicious raw spinach can be too!

    My "daily" food is brown rice - I rarely go a day without eating it!

  10. I eat clementines everyday in the winter. I think I'd like to thank them for turning my fingers orange, and giving me a lovely citrus scent.
