Why Spinach Is Good For Us
I am sure you remember Popeye the sailor man who loved spinach and when he ate it, his arms became swollen with muscles? Well, your arms may not swell with muscles but it turns out that Popeye was right - spinach is considered one of the healthiest foods you can eat.
Not only is spinach low in fat and cholesterol, but take look at this list of nutrients that spinach is high in:
- vitamins A, C, E and K
- vitamin B6
- folate (good for a healthy cardiovascular system)
- magnesium (helps lower blood pressure)
- antioxidants in the form of flavonoids
What a list!
So, all you Popeye fans, eat your spinach!

The crust can be tricky to make so I love the sound of this crustless quiche and spinach is my fav!
1 I can't wait to try!
I have two questions:
1. do you beat the eggs first, then add to the bowl?
2. Can frozen (drained well) spinach be used? Or must it be fresh (washed and chopped)?
Christine, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! I normally just crack my eggs in the bowl (usually on top of the spinach) and quickly beat them with a fork right there before mixing it all together. I use frozen spinach for this recipe and I have updated the recipe to show that - thanks for letting me know that this was a question - If you have it, chances are others do also!
Never in my life have i tried quiche. I decided to try this recipe because, well i love food and food loves me! This was so awesome! I have a dinner party coming up soon and i will definitely take this dish. I know it will be a hit!
Hanna, so glad you tried it! Quiche is delish and having a crustless recipe lets you enjoy the filling without the time commitment of making a crust!
