Wanna eat green and healthy in winter? Here’s a very simple spinach cream soup: tasty and full of vitamins, ready in 20 minutes. Enjoy!
Did you know ? 3.5 oz of spinach only cover a 20% of recommended daily amount in iron. This belief comes from two scientific errors: a first biochemist wrote 27 mg of iron instead of 2.7 mg for 3.5 oz of spinach, a second researcher attributed the level of iron in dried spinach to fresh spinach. And of course, Popeye, the sailor man with big biceps who eats cans of spinach, fueled the legend!
