Decadent Creamed Spinach
Creamed spinach is a great side to have for any occasion.
Packed with the dark leafy greens, one bowl of creamed spinach is equal to two whole bags of fresh!
Spinach is known for being fiber rich, with calcium, folic acid, vitamins A and C, and a whole host of other nutritional goodness.
For our creamed spinach, we’re making it extra decadent to keep our fat intake up since many of us are on the keto diet.
Make sure you choose organic spinach, since leafy greens are often sprayed with pesticides and herbicides.
Uncured organic bacon is also better for you, and tastes delicious too! If you wanted to make this completely vegan, you can use organic eggplant bacon, macadamia or oat milk, and vegan butter!
This can be easily multiplied if you need to make more, but pair it with some roasted chicken or steak, and you got an amazing weeknight dinner or a keto friendly side for the holidays.
