Apple and Spinach Stir Fry

Have you seen all of the jokes about the way cooked spinach looks like a fraction of the amount it was as fresh spinach? They always make me laugh, but the truth is that fresh or cooked, spinach is a powerhouse when it comes to nutritional value. It is loaded with antioxidants and is a great source of vitamin A and vitamin C. This recipe is so surprisingly flavorful, you won’t even mind the spinach. Or if you already are a spinach lover, you will be so content to have found a new recipe that includes your favorite food.
