I love spinach as well but don't think I could manage that much! Shows he cares though!

Haha. Its a nice effort.

I've eaten a lot of olives & their oil, since I heard that a combination of light & dark is meant to have anti-inflammatory affects.

Not sure this actually works. Its probably the same kind of quantity to get the benefit but I tell myself its a health food so have some almost every day anyway.

Happy munching! 😄

Misguided, but sweet. Wrong kind of steroids. But bless him for caring <3

Hmmm...spinach is very high in oxalates. Probably won't make you feel too good.

At least he's taking an interest! 😁

Thanks all he has now bought me an infusion tea pot as we eat a lot of ginger already but it also raved re ginger properties and I said I love fresh ginger guessed it😁

You might do this already but JIC. I freeze pieces of peeled fresh ginger and then run one or two through the juicer with carrots etc or put them in a smoothie - really nice!

Most of the major supermarkets sell frozen chopped ginger, garlic, parsley, corriander, onions, and some other products too. Brilliant for cooking with. I have a stock in my freezer, saves the old wrists chopping and no waste either.

I like spinach too but it contains too much iron for me and has a tendency to have a bit of a laxative effect so I have to avoid it a bit.
