How can I make leaf spinich taste good? I have gotten use to all other fruits and veggies but can barley stomach spinich. I usually eat it with chopped up chicken.
V8 juice. yay or nah? has sugar carbs and alot of cals but has "all the veggies you need in a day". The 10 habits says no to drinkes with cals so I have been following that, however I woke up this morning and theres like 3 or 4 bottles of V8 splash in the fridge. should I avoid it?
1 I like leaf spinach when i cook it in a black iron skillet or really any skillet and put a little salt over it maybe throw in some mushrooms. Always put a little EVOO on the pan and you can add any kind of spice and seasoning and let it cook down until its concentrated to about 1/4 of its size.
2 Im not too sure about v8 though but i think the sugars are natural, from tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables (tomatoes are a fruit by the way), its got a lot of K, Vitamin C and A so it doesnt look like its going to kill you... Now the splash is higher in carbs and sugar so they probably added some form of sugar to make it sweeter but I'm not expert on v8.
I think splash is more citrus less vegetable, though thats going from a long ago memory when i had one. If thats the case, it could be more sugar just from the citrus fruits, I think V8 are sposed to be like 100% juice or something. Anyway, I say go for it. Just not like 5 a day or something.
you said you like other vegatables are any of them greens? If so just mix a little spinach, not enough to ruin the taste of the vegatable you like. Plus if their are other greens you like you can substitute them.
I like spinach raw. I use it to make salads. I get the baby spinach leaves and make half the salad base with it and the other half with red leaf or butter lettuce. Then I add all the other veggies that go in. I find that this tastes really good, and doesn't smell the way cooked spinich does, which is a big turn off.
When I make a spaghetti, I will take some of the sauce and put it on a small bed of fresh spinach and sprinkle it with parmesean cheese. That is really good and they complement each other nicely. You won't even think you're eating spinach.
Also use spinach on sandwiches instead of lettuce. It's good that way too.
