Tinned spinach - why do you hurt me so?
There's something about tinned spinach that I've always loved. It's got such a good flavour. When I was underweight I even used to eat it as my "drunk food".
However, whenever I eat it - no matter what brand - it gives me terrible sh*ts. Like seriously. According to the ingredients there's nothing in it but spinach, salt and water. Fresh spinach - raw or cooked, never gives me this problem.
Why are those you love always the ones that hurt you?
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
