OK, the title of this posting may sound silly, but I think this makes at least some sense. When I was in Brazil a few weeks ago visiting family, I got really sick and had to go to the hospital and when I was there, I found out that I was an anemic. Because of that, since I’ve been back in the States, I’ve been eating better and have noticed a difference in my health. Everyday since then, I’ve been eating a pile of spinach with everything I eat and as a result of this, my stamina, energy, focus, discipline, and health have increased and improved! Before my trip, I felt lazy, sleepy, tired, low energy, and that was always giving me excuses to not work on my business; it would be like: I get home from work and unbelievably tired and would be like, “hmm, I’ll work on my business this weekend” and then when the time would come, if I did spend anytime on it, it’d be very short and usually RIGHT before bed, causing me to go to bed really late. I no longer have that problem and everyday, when I come home from work, I actually can’t WAIT to work on my business! Thank you, spinach! I know not everybody here is an anemic and not everybody may like spinach but if you are interested, here’s how I make it:
1) One bag of organic baby spinach, about 3-4 cloves of garlic, 1 tablespoon of salted (or unsalted, if that’s better for you) organic butter, and a bottle of Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2) Chop the garlic, pour some olive oil just to cover the bottom of the pot, and put the garlic in the cooking pot and saute it at very low heat. After about 2 minutes when it’s sauteing, put in the 1 tablespoon of butter.
3) As soon as the butter is completely melted, put in about about 1/3 to 1/2 a bag of the organic baby spinach and it may fill up the pot if it’s small, but when it cooks (keep it at low heat), the leaves will shrink as they absorb the oil and the butter and cook and stir for about 10 minutes or until the spinach is all shrunken and soaked up, giving at the same appearence that the frozen packaged spinach has.
4) Serve with whatever choice of meal you’re having (ex: brown rice, chicken, pasta, other vegetables, whatever) and enjoy! By the way, this is meant to serve one.
