Nancy’s Quick and Easy Spinach

I can’t promise that I will try this one.  I am not a huge fan of frozen spinach, but I hear tell this recipe is a winner. Anything with butter has to be good, right?!?  What I like about this recipe is it is fast and worry free.  Something important to a lady like Nancy, because she has 3 kids, with two of them being infants!  It goes to show you that low carb doesn’t have to be as complicated as some folks make it out to believe.  There ARE convenience options for low carb, just without all the nasty chemicals you get in a TV dinner.  Nancy is one of my Atkins “buddies.”  She has been a low carber for going on two years with great success!  Hats off to Nancy!


1 small onion chopped

3 T butter

10 oz package of frozen spinach


Chop 1 small onion into microwave-proof tupperware or glass dish, add 1 tbsp butter, and microwave on high for about 4 minutes, until the onion is cooked and the edges are browning. Add a 10 oz package of frozen spinach and microwave on high for about 12 minutes (My microwave is 800w) until cooked. Drain off any excess liquid, and stir in another tbsp or two of butter. Season to taste. Makes 4 servings @ 2.4NC per serving.

I am a low carb fan and have been for over a year now. Before I discovered this way of eating, I was pre-diabetic, had off the charts cholesterol and high blood pressure. With no meds, all of that stuff is normal now. Thank you so much, Dr. Atkins, for showing me such a wonderful way of eating that is delicious, satisfying and healthy! Even if you don't struggle with your weight, I highly recommend you taking on the low carb way of life. The health benefits to doing so are legion! I have a beautiful wife and two of the most adorable children a dad could ask for.
