Written By steeve adam on Wednesday, 17 May 2017 | May 17, 2017

Spinach is rightfully known as a “superfood” - calorie for calorie, it’s one of the most nutrient dense foods there is. it provides substantial amounts of vitamin K, pro-vitamin A (betacarotene), manganese, folate, magnesium, vitamin C, iron, and potassium. Spinach is also a good source of lutein, along with a carotenoid called neoxanthin, which has anticancer activity.

Ingredients 

  • 6 oz. boneless raw chicken breast, diced 
  • 1 c. raw spinach 
  • 3 c. raw onion, sliced

  • 4 tsp. extra virgin olive oil 
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • 1 dash ground black pepper 
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg 
  • 4 sprigs raw parsley 
  • salt to taste
