SPINACH FOR YOUR BONES

As many of you know I have osteoporosis. I also have a bone tumor so I am paying lots of attention right now to anything concerning the bones. Thankfully, spinach is one of my favorite foods and I plan on adding a lot more of it to my diet. Here are some 'good for your bones' facts about spinach:

  • 1/2 cup of spinach supplies you with 122 mg of calcium
  • Spinach provides the body with bone-building magnesium
  • Spinach provides the body with bone-building vitamin K
Protect your bones! If spinach is not currently a part of your diet, make a point to start including it often, at least weekly. You can saute spinach, eat in in a salad, drop some into soup, use it on a sandwich, etc. There are many tasty ways to work spinach into your diet.
