Spinach Lover or Hater?

I used to be a lettuce girl and then I found spinach and began learning about the health benefits. I ditched lettuce and embraced spinach with everything I had! Best health move ever!

I eat spinach with everything and I make a mean ham sandwich with my secret Italian cheese :D
The kids LOVE it! And usually crown me mom of the year! *swoon*

I think it's downright amazing! Maybe they do not know all that green bush on their sandwiches are spinach? Maybe they don't know they are supposed to hate it?

I count my blessings. After all they despise soup!!!



Check out some of the health benefits!

So are you a spinach lover or hater? 

Any recipe tips for the spinach?

  1. I'm so jealous that you get the kids to eat Spinach! My two younger ones won't touch it. I like it raw, or cooked in recipes (like lasagna). I don't like it out of a can.

    Secret Italian Cheese??? Yummmmmmy.... if you need a taste tester, I'm always happy to comply. :D

    1. I know right!
      It think it's amazing! Maybe they don't know those huge amount of green leaves on their sandwiches are Spinach? maybe they don't know they aren't supposed to like it? :) haha. I love it.

      I count my blessings. Afterall, they despise soup!


      And Rosey I totally would make my sandwich for you. I found that cheese and fell in love. Then I went back and they had none and I almost fainted!! haha.

  2. Ever since I changed my ways of living Spinach was one of them & only fresh spinach. Once in a while I would eat frozen if that was my only choice, but NEVER canned. Any canned vegetables for that matter. Way to much sodium. I do have a recipe for Spinach, which is immensely good. Go to http://thenewxmasdolly.blogspot.com/2012/06/weight-be-gone.html (I posted it a while back). Have a great day my friend. Great post. I learned some more stuff about spinach. mmmm My favorite is using fresh spinach in an omelet maybe with chopped tomatoes and Greek cheese (just a touch). mmmm

  3. I like it a lot, fresh in salads, cooked down in recipes or heck, straight from a box in the frozen section!

    1. I've seen the canned ones, but didn't know they had them frozen. I don't eat the canned ones.

      I'll have to check out the frozen kind.

  4. I've never tried cooked spinach, but I've had it in dip and it was delicious! And I'm sure I could use it in place of lettuce for added benefits - Popeye was onto something, after all!

  5. Honestly I was thinking about this yesterday. I can only eat it raw, the texture and taste of it cooked it completely different to me. I *think* I can eat it in quiche but it's been so long I've forgotten.

  6. I love spinach but my family doesn't. Just last night I ate a whole bowl of Spinach Artichoke dip by myself because no one else likes it. Good for me though. :)

  7. I LOVE Spinach. Sometimes I can sneak some in a salad or sandwich and my hubby and sons won't notice. They just don't realize that it's almost like lettuce but with much, much more nutrition!

  13. I love spinach, and usually have it in my salad if they are baby spinach. Otherwise, stir fried, with just a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper!

  14. We have always enjoyed spinach. I remember our oldest daughter requesting spinach casserole for her 3rd bday. I haven't made that in years because of the cheese - too fattening, but I'm gonna have to do it sometime again soon. A quick & easy fix is to simply sauté some spinach in butter with a little salt. Yum! Now, you got me wanting it. lol Thanks for visiting. I have my Friday Sillies up, too. Feel free to link up!

  15. I used to eat canned spinach until I discovered fresh and frozen. :) I never thought to replace my lettuce with spinach on my sandwiches - I'm SO going to do that now! :) I fooled Princess Nagger into eating a spinach and cheese pizza - by telling her the 'green stuff' was basil...even went so far as to giving her a taste of basil from the spice cupboard so she'd figure out it doesn't taste bad. She eventually caught on to me, though, but doesn't resist eating that pizza so she gets spinach that way. ;)

    Loved your Friday Sillies! Thanks for the giggle! :)

  21. We eat it almost every breakfast. It goes fast around here. My kids don't call it, "Spinach" though. They say, "I'm eating leaves."
