A Power Couple

Lemon & Spinach – not only do they taste great together, but when combined, the boost of nutrients is even stronger.

Spinach has a high amount of iron, but it’s plant-based and not easily absorbed by the body. But when you add lemon, its vitamin C changes the molecular structure of the spinach’s iron and ta-da, the iron is more digestible and better absorbed by your body!

 

 

My recommendation: saute spinach in garlic and olive oil and finish it off with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
