Spinach – Free Radical Fighter

Spinach – Free Radical Fighter

Spinach is one of the healthiest foods around. Another dark green vegetable that is chocked full of vitamins and minerals, including iron. Iron is a key component of hemoglobin – it will get your blood moving. If your blood is moving, then it will repair the skin. This is a great ingredient for several skin conditions. Spinach is a free radical fighter!

Do you have acne? Adding spinach to your diet on the regular can help prevent breakouts altogether. Vitamin K keeps the skin clear, reduces inflammation and enhances blood circulation. It can also help improve the appearance of dark under-eye circles. Then we have Vitamins A and C which work to repair skin cells, boost collagen production, and improved elasticity – keeping your complexion youthful and glowing. Spinach’s water content helps maintain skin hydration.

Recipe:

Spinach & Roasted Cauliflower Salad

I like to make the cauliflower ahead and toss in the fridge until we are ready to eat.

Ingredients:

1 cauliflower, small head, chopped

4 tbs olive oil, divided

2 ½ oz baby spinach

3 scallions, chopped

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tbs red wine vinegar

½ cup shredded parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375. Place cauliflower in baking dish. Add half of oil, season with salt & pepper and toss to coat. Bake for 20 minutes until just tender. Remove and let cool.

Mix spinach, scallions, and cauliflower in a bowl. Combine the remaining oil, mustard, and vinegar. Pour over veggies. Toss to coat and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
