Nutrition Info

Spinach

Spinach, as well as being very high on Vitamins A and K, and manganese, has great ant-inflammatory effects – inflammation is a precursor to many diseases and conditions, including some cancers. The density of nutrients in spinach puts it at the top of the foods list for goodness.

Cheese

Cheese is not only gorgeous to eat but provides some important nutrients including phosphorus, calcium and vitamin B12. Phosphorus forms part of every one of our cells, so is pretty important! It’s actually quite abundant in the diet so you don’t have to OD on cheese – sorry 🙂

Calcium is not only good for teeth and bones but helps to balance the PH of the blood as well as assisting with nerve signals and muscle function. B12 performs a lot of functions but its main claim to fame is red blood cell production.
