I love both spinach and kale so when I saw this article and read it, I had to share it with you. I was shocked and pleasantly surprised about the information given.
Stock up on spinach. Both greens are bursting with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and each packs only 49 calories per cup (cooked). Yet, even though “kale is the superfood de jour, spinach is actually a more concentrated source of nutrients,” says Sharon Palmer, R.D., author of Plant-Powered for life. Kale contains 10 percent of your daily needs for seven different nutrients, whereas spinach packs 10 percent of your daily needs for seven different nutrients, whereas spinach packs 10 percent of your daily requirements for an impressive 18 vitamins and minerals-including energy boosting iron, bone-boosting calcium and folate, a key vitamin for women of childbearing age. Plus, with 5 grams of protein in spinach versus 2 in kale, you’ll feel fuller longer.
