Summer salad with spinach, strawberries and almonds

Summer is already upon us! The earth is full of nutrients in their purest form which are great for regenerating your body! Spinach and fresh strawberries pair really well in this easy-to-make and delicious salad! Its slightly spicy lime and coriander vinaigrette enhances its flavors. Ideal for camping or picnics, it is light, fruity and packed with vitamins!

 

spinach

Thanks to its high content of antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E, they are considered theone of the best anti-cancer ingredients. The presence of folic acid as well as the phyto-nutrients also allow spinach to have a most positive action when it comes to fights cancer cells. 

Another important benefit of spinach is its high magnesium content, which helps against cramps and fatigue! A food to consume particularly during the pre-menstrual period ...

 

Strawberries

Delicious to the taste, strawberries are full of vitamin C. On an equal weight basis, they contain more vitamin C than an orange (100g of strawberries contains 1/2 of the recommended daily allowance).


The small seeds of strawberries, called achenes, provide insoluble fiber that helps prevent constipation.


Strawberries are also a good source of pectin and other soluble fibers that can help lower high blood cholesterol levels.
