Simple Strawberry Spinach Salad

This strawberry spinach salad is simple and delicious! No fresh strawberries on hand? No problem. Just run some frozen ones under hot water for a minute before blending for the dressing. Besides being simple and sweet, this spinach salad is packed with nutrients.

With more than a dozen flavonoid compounds that function as anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer agents, spinach is a healthy powerhouse! It is off the charts in vitamin K, which promotes healthy bones in addition to its high calcium and magnesium content. It is also high in iron, folate, fibre, manganese, copper and many more nutrients. In addition, it is low calorie and very low GI (gastrointestinal index), keeping you fuller longer.

A good source of vitamin C, manganese, fibre and other nutrients, strawberries offer antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer benefits. In addition, they are low GI (gastrointestinal index), and you can enjoy one cup for only 46 calories.

You’d totally enjoy this simple strawberry spinach salad with the amount of nutrition it’ll give you.
