This spinach soup for weight loss recipe is easy to make and satisfying, not to mention lean and nutritious.

Spinach has long been famous for its ability to give energy instantaneously. Remember Popeye the Sailor Man? While this leafy green won’t cause your biceps to inflate like balloons, it is dense in vitamins and minerals, low in calories and versatile in cooking.

Spinach is considered one of the healthiest foods in the world. Spinach is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Also, it’s low in calories and is known to be healthy for the heart.

Spinach is a good source of vitamins A and C, and the minerals manganese, zinc and selenium. This makes spinach useful in protecting various systems and functions within the body, from digestive health to eye sight.

In Ayurveda spinach has more of Vata’s qualities, so it’s best consumed in Pitta and Kapha seasons, that is from March to October. Spinach has detoxifying properties and is also known to nourish the body. It is ideal for those looking for weight loss in a healthy way.
