Healthy Recipe from your Favorite Registered Dietitian – Sherrie James, R.D.N.
Spring clean your family’s diet by making a healthy spinach and strawberry salad! Salads are great for the season as they are light and easy to prepare. What’s even better about this recipe is that you can include your kids in the preparation process. Tasks such as washing the spinach and mixing the salad are great hands on activities. This is a super salad because the strawberries and spinach compliment each other quite well, as the vitamin C in the strawberries helps your body to better absorb the iron that is in the spinach.
