Breakfast- If you will have been following Motherhood and Merlot for some time (love you all for that!) then you realize what an enormous fan of smoothies I’m. It is my go-to breakfast and generally even lunch. I used to be just a little apprehensive at first about throwing one thing as strong-flavored as spinach into my fruit smoothie. But, it’s DELICIOUS. I drink my Lean Green Smoothie most likely 3-4 instances per week.
Adding it to any form of egg dish can be an ideal thought! It cooks all the way down to a light taste and simply provides some bonus vitamins to your breakfast dish. Egg-tastic delight!
Snacks- Broil Spinach sprinkled with just a little sea salt and pepper for a couple of minutes. It’s higher than chips! Well… higher for you a minimum of:)
Lunch- Add it to any sandwich or make a salad out of it. I really like the combo of spinach and strawberries in a salad.
Dinner- Saute it down with some apple cider vinegar, steam it, stuff it in some hen breast with feta cheese… the checklist goes on and on.
