Bacon-flavoured chips are not potato chips. Also known as bacon bits, these small chunks are a healthy way to fool your tastebuds into thinking that your English spinach (or salad or sandwich) is topped with freshly fried morsels of fatty bacon. The fat count goes way down (and the saturated fat disappears altogether), plus you get the benefit of soy protein and soy oil, the main ingredients in "fake bacon". You will find bacon-flavoured chips in the spice aisle of the supermarket.
English spinach supplies an extraordinary wealth of vitamins and minerals, and a host of phytochemicals that work to protect your heart and blood vessels from disease. The B vitamin folate, plentiful in English spinach, lowers blood levels of homocysteine, an amino acid associated with higher risk of heart disease. English spinach is also rich in betacarotene, lutein and cholesterol-lowering plant sterols. And the vitamin C in English spinach can help to prevent stroke.
