Being a vegetarian, I often internet surf to research meat and egg substitutes at various vegan or healthy food cooking websites, such as The Flaming Vegan, Soni’s Food, Yummly, and Delicious Living, seeking for tasty but nutritious vegetarian and vegan recipes. I have compiled a long list of vegan recipes that I am eager to try out. But, today, my focus is on the importance of eating spinach. Earlier this week, on the Jeff Probst Show, actress Lucy Lui expressed her concern for her father losing his memory. She talked about senior citizens’ memory problems and her interest in helping her father. Besides senior citizens, other people need to improve their memory, as well, but for different reasons, such as stressed out students, workaholics, thespians, and people who give speeches.
Spinach is known to improve the brain’s mechanics, which include focusing, functioning, and recollection abilities. This green leafy vegetable contains folate, B-vitamins, and L-Tyrosine. Folate tends to protect the brain’s functioning abilities from any inflammation by reducing such inflammation. Steamed spinach has enough folate and Vitamin B6 that enables the nervous system and brain cells to function properly. B-Vitamins can prevent anemia as well as they are needed for healthy heart, skin, gastrointestinal tract and central nervous system. These B-Vitamins are also important for building and maintaining body tissues. L-Tyrosine improves people’s mind in order to help them focus better.
Therefore, it is important to add some spinach in meals. Consider one eight-ounce glass of pure green juice for breakfast with a multivitamin as well as a bowl of oatmeal hot cereal. For lunch, consider one cup of steamed spinach as well as a cup of soymilk and fruit. For dinner, consider one cup of cooked spinach with some brown or bastami rice. A colorful salad of spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, almonds, garlic, lemon juice, and tofu or cheese makes a healthy and filling meal, as well. This leafy vegetable is perfect for anyone who wants to improve their memory, concentration, focus, and productivity. Students, workaholics, and senior citizens will benefit most from this vegetable because they desperately need to improve their brain’s functioning abilities.
