May 11, 2012 – 223 Days Until Baktun 12

Survivalist Tip: Spinach is something you should have in your food supply.  It is one of the most popular vegetables and one of the most versatile, as it can be prepared in a number of ways.  It is also one of the most nutrient-dense of all foods; low in calories and extremely high in vitamins and minerals.  Like all leafy green vegetables, spinach is an excellent source of Vitamins A, B2, B6, C and K, as well as magnesium, potassium and calcium.  All of these elements work to combat free radicals in your body.  And, with plenty of radicals running all over the place after the apocalypse, you don’t need to worry about inside of you.  Some studies have shown that even moderate consumption of spinach slows age-related decline in brain functions.  Spinach also has anti-inflammatory properties that can ease the aggravation of arthritis, asthma, migraines and osteoporosis.  There’s no proof it helps ease the aggravation of dealing with bratty kids, but the migraine relief might be close.  As I’ve mentioned several times before, struggling to survive in the barren wasteland following the upheaval will require you to be in top mental and physical shape; thus, spinach is one food to help you stay sharp.  Otherwise, you won’t be able to enjoy all that chocolate you’ve stored.
