Today we have used our TERRA saucepan to prepare this autumnal dish that is so good for us on rainy days like the ones we are having: rice with spinach and mushrooms .
For those who do not know, spinach is an antioxidant par excellence , so it will help us prevent premature aging; In addition, they have a high fiber content, which controls and regulates intestinal transit; we could say that they are a natural laxative. These vegetables have a great energy value both in vitamins and minerals and due to the total absence of fat, they are used in all slimming diets.
Did you know that spinach has a lot of calcium? so they are great for our bones and teeth. Oh, and lots of folic acid, perfect for pregnant women, those with gout, arthritis, and kidney stones.
