I've got another spinach recipe that you might like. Before I was eating my spinach with cheese, and the calcium was cancelling out the positive effects of the magnesium. So, I had to make something that didn't have any cheese in it. Plus, I try to eat it with something bread-y so its gentle on my tummy. Anyways, here goes:
12 oz elbox macaroni, cooked in salted water according to package directions
3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (good anti-inflammatory)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 10oz boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed of all liquid
1/2 can of diced tomatoes, drained
salt and pepper
Cook the pasta in salted water according to package directions, drain and toss with 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil.
Meanwhile, in a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the extra virgin olive oil over low-medium heat and add garlic. Cook until fragrant (2-3 minutes). Add the spinach and tomatoes and cook until heated through (3-4 minutes). Season well with salt and pepper.
Add the spinach mixture to the pasta and toss until well combined. Serve immediately.
Hope you like this as much as I do! Its really helping me.
