What I'm eating right now: "Pretty Popeye": Healthy Italian Ice Treat
Might not look that 'pretty', but it tastes damn GOOD/refreshing!
Together, spinach and strawberries complement and improve total nutritional value. One contributes nutrients that its counterpart lacks!
Whole fresh organic spinach leaves
Whole frozen organic strawberries
Just a few ice cubes, a little water, Unsweetened almond milk, Fresh squeezed orange juice - you decide your own ratio based on your taste levels, there is no wrong answer -
Blend well until everything is very finely chopped and place in the freezer for a few hours -
Eat with a spoon
The biggest advantages of eating strawberries and spinach together is that they complement one another to turn a little nutrition into something more substantial. If you ate 1 cup of either one alone, you would only get 2 percent of the recommended daily intake of zinc and thiamine and just 3 percent of the recommend daily intake of calcium and vitamin E. When they’re combined into one dish, you get double the nutrients.
When it comes to vitamin C and vitamin B-6, strawberries fill in the nutritional gap you would experience if you only ate spinach.
You’ll enhance the fiber content five times by eating 1 cup of strawberries with 1 cup of spinach. Strawberries and spinach contain soluble AND insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber lowers cholesterol by binding with it and carrying it out of the body. It also helps keep blood sugar balanced by slowing absorption. Insoluble fiber keeps food moving through the digestive tract and can prevents disease.
BEST USED: Without protein powder, it's best between meals as a treat or as a complement to a protein-based meal
AS A MEAL: You can experiment with this one since it's so simple - adding bananas, cashew milk, ETC! IF you decide not to freeze it and to instead add powdered protein - you can drink it as a smoothie and make it one of your meals.

My science lover friends and I got together tonight to talk about bugs (and spiders).
In particular, "non-specific entomological symbiosis in the Amazon."
Insect candies. We're a bunch of hellraisers, lemme tell ya...
My friend Phil (Torres, biologist, 'Spiderman') has spent time in the rainforest. He and his research team discovered this (pictured) new species of arachnid which they named the Cyclosa Decoy, while in Peru.
Yes, it's gross, but super tiny (around 5mm) and will SCULPT - out of leaves, debris and random bug remnants - a larger version of itself (complete with 8 legs) in its web to ward off predators.
Mother Nature, you are perverse. But how I love thee.
