1. Creamy Spinach Soup With Crispy Bacon
I have been crazy about creamy soups for a couple of years now, I would say. To be precise – ever since I have found the first recipe and realized how simple and delicious they are. If you take a closer look, you’ll see there’s no such a big difference with making a creamy soup and instant one.
Of course, it depends on how many little details you will go for, but preparing soups is, generally speaking, quite simple. You just add some of your favorite veggies that would taste good together, cook them, mix them all up with stick blender, and you are good to go. Another great thing is you can never actually get tired of creamy soups because you can always make some new combos as well as add different ingredients for some new flavors.
So, what is your favorite creamy soup?

2. Easy Low Carb Keto Creamed Spinach With Cream Cheese
Here is another one of our delicious and easy-to-prepare keto spinach recipes! Did you know it originally comes from Persia? Although it has that neutral flavor and aroma that can basically come from any part of the world, it is native to central and western Asia. In particular, it was brought to China in the 7th, and in Europe in the 12th century; the US got it in 1806.
It is best eaten fresh, although people mostly consume it cooked. Keep in mind not to cook it longer than 1-3 minutes in order for it to preserve its nutritive benefits – and there are certainly plenty of those!
It is a good source of insoluble fiber which is excellent for preventing constipation and improving your digestion. This low-carb veggie is also full of vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, B6, B9, E, C, K1, iron, folic acid, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
Besides that, it holds some valuable plant compounds that are good for your health as well: nitrates (heart health), lutein, zeaxanthin (eye health), and quercetin (anti-inflammation features). There is also kaempferol, an antioxidant that reduces the risk of cancer as well as it decreases the possibility of chronic diseases. It is quite important to consume foods high in antioxidants since they keep your cells safe and protect your body from free radicals.
Free radicals are byproducts of metabolism that can cause oxidative stress which may later trigger accelerated aging or some potential diseases. That basically means antioxidants are there to help your body stay vital and healthy for a longer time.

3. The Cheesiest Spinach Casserole
No wonder they created all those cartoons where the Popeye’s strength has been mostly based on spinach, right? This specific ingredient is truly beneficial for your health – and you don’t need to worry if it’s cooked enough since, as we have already mentioned, you can eat it raw or simply cook it for up to 3 minutes.
Still, certain individuals should definitely know spinach can have some negative effects as well. For example, people who have kidney stones should avoid it since it is high of calcium and oxalates. As we’ve said, spinach is high in vitamin K1 that is best known for promoting blood clotting. People who are consuming blood thinner medicaments should definitely speak to their healthcare practitioner in order to know if they are allowed to eat foods rich in this vitamin.
Still, the bottom line is spinach definitely comes as one of those valuable and nutritious veggies with a visible health-boosting potential and a pretty good taste that can fit almost everywhere.

4. 15 Minute Keto Garlic Chicken With Broccoli And Spinach
Keto spinach recipes are often easy to prepare as well as packed with interesting combinations of ingredients. Here we have one of my favorites – skillet meal! It comes as such a great solution when you need something quick, delicious, but at the same time, low-carb and healthy. This particular recipe includes chicken breasts, olive oil, both Italian & classical (salt and pepper) seasoning, garlic, tomatoes, broccoli, baby spinach, shredded cheese, and cream cheese.
Broccoli is another valuable veggie and one of the main ingredients in this appetizing combo. Also, it is something that’s not often combined with spinach which is why I definitely recommend you try this variation!
It is packed with fiber, vitamins C, A, K, B9, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, and some other important nutrients. It is also one of those vegetables that can be eaten raw – although I must be honest and admit I haven’t tried that version yet.
Still, it is incredibly delicious after being cooked as well; of course, if you keep in mind not to overcook it and make lose its nutritive values.
Broccoli will also fill your body with multiple potent antioxidants that will support the health of your body cells. Other than that, you will see it have anti-inflammation features as well as it can help with lowering your blood sugar. Broccoli also boosts your heart health and promotes healthy digestion without constipation.
All in all, we would say that this is overall quite a beneficial and healthy combo. Personally, I find the taste is on an equally high level as a nutritive structure – and you?
