Eat your SPINACH!!!

Eat your SPINACH!Hey Hey YOU!! Eat your SPINACH!!!

I eat mine and DRINK it too!! Nutritionist Megan Ware says, “Spinach is one of the best sources of dietary potassium and magnesium, two very important electrolytes necessary for maintaining human health. Spinach provides a whopping 839 milligrams of potassium per cup (cooked). As a comparison, one cup of sliced banana has about 539mg of potassium.”

Ware noted that there are several health benefits to potassium, among them “protection against loss of muscle mass, preservation of bone mineral density and reduction in the formation of kidney stones.” She added, “Only 2 percent of U.S. adults meet the daily 4,700 mg recommendation for potassium.”

If you are wanting MORE of this GOODNESS in your life, you can get more than your daily dose in just ONE serving of the proprietary Shakeology Super-Green/Phytonutrient blend. Other Superfoods in this blend include: Moringa, Chlorella, Spirulina, Chia, Ashwaganda. I’ll be covering those a little more in depth since they are most likely foreign to you if you drink over the counter “protein” shakes. More info can be found on my website: Drink Your Veggies!
