What do we need for the chicken breast with spinach?

First of all we need chicken and spinach, of course, as the name already indicates. For extra flavor we need onions, carrots and lemon juice. Lemon juice provides the freshness and an extra portion of vitamin C. 

Is a spinach recipe healthy?

To put it briefly, yes spinach is really healthy! Because spinach with its 3.5mg iron per 100g provides a good portion for a well-functioning immune system. The green vegetables also contain magnesium and zinc as well as many other vitamins. At the same time, spinach is also super good for muscle building, as the vegetables are extremely low in calories, 12 kcal per 100g, but at the same time have a lot of protein. However it gets even better! Spinach is also low-carb, so it ensures that you don’t get extra calories and can even help you lose weight healthily.

Spinach makes you strong!

So what do we learn from this? Spinach makes you strong and gives you big muscles as Popeye has taught all of us. This is now already known as the Popeye effect. The same applies to chicken, as most bodybuilders will assure us. Spinach to build muscle simply works. 

Combine the two together and you get a super delicious and healthy recipe for muscle building. For extra vitamin C we add some delicious lemon juice and it becomes a really healthy spinach recipe!

But I am talking too much again! Let’s start with the recipe.
