Cerealthy is an initiative by a dedicated animal rights activist and lawyer Eleana Casado.

Spinach is one of the most nutrient  foods on the planet. Spinach its on the top of the list of many super foods list. It is also in season now so its at its best. The time when I really experienced the power of this amazing leafy vegetable was whenever I was expecting my second child. I was told, that the iron levels in my blood are very low, so I would need to take some iron. So by instinct at the time I knew that spinach contains lots of iron and I started to take spinach 2-3 times a week.By the time it was time to check my blood again I have increased the iron levels in my blood by 5 times.

I have always loved spinach- growing up in Bulgaria, where during this time of the year there was an abundance of it in my granny’s garden. Now transferring to a vegan lifestyle I love it even more-raw, lightly cooked or juiced. I love it all.health benefits of spinach

Today I made one of my favourite treats-spinach with rice with olive oil and lemon juice. I will give you the recipe but first I would like to share with you some of the health benefits of spinach and why it is a good idea to add more of it in your diet.

1. One cup of spinach contains  vitamin K and vitamin A, almost all the manganese and folate your body needs and nearly 40 percent of your magnesium requirement.

2.It is a  very good  source of more than 20 different measurable nutrients, including dietary fiber, calcium and protein.

3.The vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, manganese, zinc and selenium present in spinach all serve as powerful antioxidants that combat the onset of osteoporosis, atherosclerosis and high blood pressure

4.Spinach contains its own type of plant based steroids called phytoecdysteroids. Phytoecdysteroids are similar to insect molting hormones and have been shown to dramatically increase glucose metabolism. This keeps blood sugar levels stable and minimizes the need for the critical fat-storage hormone insulin.

5.Spinach also contains kaempferol, a strong antioxidant that prevents the formation of cancerous cells. Women who have a high intake of this show a reduced risk of ovarian cancer, likely because of kaempferol’s ability to reduce cancer cells proliferation.

6.Spinach is a source of glycoclycerolipids that protect the digestive tract from inflammatory damage. These glycoclycerolipids are the main fatty acids that makeup the cell membranes of light-sensitive organs in chlorophyll containing plants.

7.Spinach is an important source of copper, zinc, and selenium which boost immunity.

I am sure you do not any more convincing how vital is to consume spinach. Here is a simple and tasty recipe.

You need

1 cup of washed rice

2 cups of organic spinach

2 onions

3 cups of water

salt, pepper

oregano

olive oil

lemon juice health benefits of spinach

Cook the chopped onion in olive oil, salt , black pepper and oregano till the onion turns golden. Then add the rice and mix well. Add the spinach and mix. Then add the 3 cups of water and let is simmer for 10 -12 minutes till all the water is absorbed by the rice. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Enjoy hot or cold.

Sending blessings and love

 

 
P.S This is day 41 of  Word press Challenge to make a post every day. There are 198 days left of 2012.

“We are what we repeatedly do, excellence is not an act, it’s a habit.”

These words, said by one of the greatest minds, are a daily recurrence in my mind. It’s the simplest of things that we do daily, that shapes us as human beings. With our daily habits we also make a difference. The choices that vegan mothers create a ripple effect,

I was watching videos on You Tube and I came across a vegan mother. Her name is Manuela Renner and she already shared one of her vegan recipes on this blog. Manuela  is based in Rheinfelden, Germany.

I can relate to her in so many ways. She lives with her omnivore husband in Germany and have a child. The child sees people eating meat.

Showing to kids why vegans don’t eat or use any animal products is very challenging when not everyone in the family is vegan.

We live in a world where it is socially acceptable to eat animal flesh and it is also encouraged, which makes the job of any vegan mother even harder.

As well as that we live in a world where animal activism uses guilt and pity as a propaganda strategy. Personally I am not sure that these strategies are helping other people to make more vegan choices. A lot of the videos that you can see on YouTube are horrific. There is this total disconnect that exists in a way kids are educated to love and pet some animals and happily eat others.

So what does a vegan mother do? 

We can fight the world and fool ourselves that we will wake up in a vegan world. Real change take time and happens from within.

What Manuela is doing is simple and yet very powerful. Manuela has found a way to help and make a difference by creating child friendly videos. As I have mentioned before, nearly all of the vegans grew up eating animal flesh and nearly all of them at some point made a decision to become vegan for their own reasons.

Manuela’s video channel is focused on one of the most important part of being vegan and that is educating children. This is a challenging and very sensitive subject, because explaining to kids how some animals end up in the supermarket can cause trauma. Manuela had noticed that most videos are not suitable for children and that is the main inspiration behind the videos she has made. 

Her videos are in German and English, but the animation is done very well so kids can understand what the video is about even if they don’t speak any of the two languages.

I also find it challenging at times to explain to kids why I don’t eat animals or why I feel so guilty when I see them eating pizza. We do live in a non-vegan world and the only way to help our kids is by educating them in the most loving and kind way possible so they know that they can choose not to eat animal flesh or use any other products that come from animals.

Vegane Kinder is dedicated and suitable for children channel, but as a vegan mother myself I feel that this channel is also for me. Here is the playlist in English, titled “Vegan animated videos for kids”.

 

 

 

Manuela has made videos about vegan books for kids. All of her work explains in a suitable for the young minds way, why not to use leather, why circuses are bad, why not to eat fish, why not to eat meat just to name a few.The videos are short and to the point.The quality of all the animations is very high and the message is bright and easy for anyone to understand.

In addition to them there are a few songs that kids will enjoy too. Here is one of them. 

 

Another favourite topic in the video selection is the collection of vegan sweets, which is very appropriate and helpful to show to your friends and family if they want to buy you something. It is all about making an effort and Manuela’s video is perfect. 

I am very grateful to have the opportunity to introduce you to Vegan Kinder and Manuela Renner, Feel free to connect with her on Facebook and do subscribe to the channel.
