Food provides the energy and nutrients you need to be healthy. Nutrients include proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water.
For spinach specifically, sauteing before cooking further may lessen the nutritional value but would not totally deplete the value. Here is one tip for getting the most nutrients from spinach: Iron and calcium in plant foods are not highly absorbed by the body. Spinach contains a chemical called oxalic acid, which binds with iron and calcium and reduces the absorption of these minerals. To improve iron absorption, spinach should be eaten with vitamin C-rich foods such as Orange Juice, tomatoes, or citrus fruit.
This does not always hold for all vegetables, however. For guidelines on cooking techniques to preserve the most nutrients in most vegetables and greens, consider these rules of thumb:
It is actually the same thing, so the present tense is still saute.
None at all, but it is still essential.
Yes. I've found at least 2 of these models on eBay for around $50
To saute new potatoes, first you par boil for about 5 to 8 minutes until they are just about cooked, then slice the big ones and cut the smaller ones in half length ways, then gently fry (saute) in a little butter or olive oil until golden brown, drain on kitchen paper to remove excess fat then serve whilst still hot.
They are not as healthy as raw vegetables but they still have a fraction of their nutritional value.

I think i just got sick myself from eating old spinach. It didn't smell fresh but i chanced it anyways, it not being theTRIPLE-WASHED spinach that I usually buy, but i washed it myself and ate it. Now it is two days later i have bathroom sickness, it went away then came back. It felt like I was going to puke but nothing came up. NOTE: If you can smell the spinach and it has a smell other than like a regular leaves ......then DON'T eat it. Spinach that is still fresh doesn't have a strong smell. Old spinach does.
Yes, but when you defrost or cook it from frozen it will go really mushy. Still tastes the same though.
cut up onion & saute it in butter until tender. that will neutralize the strong taste, but still add flavor
Yes. Protein does not diminish the nutritional value of fruits and/or vegetables.
I'm not sure but I think so.... Still it's not good to feed dogs table scraps.
Spinach originated in central and southwest Asia, where it may have been domesticated from the wild Spinacia tetranda, which is still gathered as an edible green in what is now Turkey. The first references to spinach are from the Sasanian Empire (about 226-640 A.D.) in Persia (what is now Iran). Arab traders brought spinach into India, and in 647 A.D., spinach was sent as a gift from the king of Nepal to China, where it is still known as the "Persian green."Spinach does not grow well in hot weather, but Islamic farmers used sophisticated irrigation techniques to successfully cultivate it in the Mediterranean regions, probably as early as the 8th century A.D.. Spinach became a popular vegetable in the Islamic Mediterranean. It reportedly arrived in Italy in 847 A.D. In Venice, cooks integrated Muslim flavoring techniques by using pine nuts and raisins in spinach dishes. Spinach appears in three 10th-century Arabian texts, one medical and two agricultural. It arrived in Spain by the 11th or 12th century. A popular dish in Islamic Cordoba was reportedly sajina, also called ÃƒÂ¡sida, a kind of watery soup made with wheat flour cooked with spinach.In Turkey, spinach was known by the 13th century, if not earlier, and was popular with the Seljuk Turks. The Italians were important for promoting the role this new vegetable played in the Mediterranean diet, as they favored spinach in their gardens beginning in the 13th century. Mediterranean Jews, the Sephardim, were also fond of spinach and prepared dishes such as shpongous, a savory casserole that was customary on Shavuot, the holiday fifty days after Passover celebrating the Palestinian harvest and the anniversary of the giving of the Law. In 13th-century Damascus, burani was a popular spinach dish of Persian origin. The prickly-seeded form of spinach was known in Germany by the 13th century.Spinach first appeared in England in the 14th century, probably via Spain. In fact, for a while, spinach was known as "the Spanish vegetable" in England. It gained quick popularity because it appeared in early spring, when other vegetables were scarce and when Lenten dietary restrictions discouraged consumption of other foods. Spinach is mentioned in the first known English cookbook, The Forme of Cury (1390), where it is referred to as spinnedge and/or spynoches.Spinach was first mentioned in a German cookbook sometime in 1485. When spinach reached Provence in the 15th century, it became the second most popular vegetable, behind cabbage. In 1533, Catherine de' Medici became queen of France. She brought many vegetables with her from Florence, but her favorite was spinach: she reportedly insisted it be served at every meal. To this day, dishes prepared on a bed of spinach are referred to as "a la Florentine."In 1614, Giangiacomo Castelvetro wrote Breve Racconto di Tutte le Radici di Tutte l'Herbe et di Tutti i Frutti (A Brief Account of All Vegetables, Herbs and Fruit), in which he called for spinach to be used as the stuffing for tortelli.In the 17th century, English philosopher John Locke reported having had a spinach and herb soup during his travels in southwestern France.Bernard McMahon from Philadelphia listed three types of Spinach in his broadside catalog in 1804. In 1809 and 1812, Thomas Jefferson cultivated spinach at Monticello, but the dark leafy green vegetable only became popular in the U.S. in the late 19th century.With the advent of canning and freezing, spinach became much more popular throughout the world and is now available in many countries that did not have a suitable climate to produce it. As people learned of its many nutritional advantages, spinach increased in popularity worldwide. In the 1930s, the cartoon character Popeye the Sailor promoted the consumption of spinach, and boosted its popularity, especially among children. During World War I, wine fortified with spinach juice was given to French soldiers weakened by hemorrhage.
Absolutely. It just won't have quite the nutritional value it had when it was really fresh. But it will still provide a lot of vitamins that green vegetables provide.
I have found the best way to keep spinach fresh is to treat it like flowers. I put in a jug of fresh water which I change daily. You can keep it either in the refrigerator or away from direct sunlight on the kitchen bench. With that said I still try to use it as quickly as possible
Spinach is relatively rich in purines compared to other vegetables, however it is still very low on the purine list.
Most people detest having their taxes raised. Children who eat other green vegetables may still detest spinach.
Muffins are nutritional because you can control what you put into them. They are very versatile. You can substitute apple sauce for part of the butter, use plain or Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, use whole wheat flour instead of white flour, add ground flax or wheat germ and you still end up with a great muffin. You can also add fruit, nuts or berries to boost the nutritional value.
You don't need to take body-building supplements if you don't do any bodybuilding. However, that being said, you still need to follow good nutritional practices. Consuming whole grains and high-nutrient vegetables like carrots, spinach, and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli will go a long way toward having less unwanted fat, making workouts easier and more productive.
No. Dont boil garlic. If needed, add a little oil to the pot and saute the garlic first then add the water and whatever ingredients you like. Boiling it will give you a rubbery bland peice of garlic.

If you are looking for equal health benefits... no. Powdered green tea is higher in antioxidants and its other nutritional components. I still recommend the tea bag because it still has the benefits and is cheaper.
An important part of the Mexican culture for centuries, prickly pear cactus is still being used there for medicinal and nutritional purposes.
