We add spinach to everything. From smoothies, dinner dishes, and sandwiches it’s one of my favorite veggies to sneak in. My son recently participated in some fun activities involving leprechauns for St. Patrick’s Day at school. My old spinach egg sandwich trick came to mind. This is a super easy way to include vegetables in their meals.
This time of year is a perfect excuse to try green things because kids are a little more open to eating it. Most kids anyway. It’s worth a try because spinach is relatively tasteless. You can make regular sandwiches or use some fun cookie cutters to make it even more festive.
Most of know how healthy spinach is already, but if you’re wondering. It is an excellent source of Vitamin K, A, B2, B6, C, and E. It also has fiber, folate, and protein.
You literally just have to add some spinach to some eggs, blend and season if desired. It’s incredibly versatile. You can make egg “rolls”, an omelet, or eat it over rice with some sausage or bacon.
