Core Strength Spinach


  • 1 Container or Package of Pre-Washed Organic Spinach
  • 1 Sliced Red Pepper
  • 1 Sliced Yellow Pepper
  • 1 Thinly Sliced Yellow Squash
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic (minced or sliced)
  • 1 Small Yellow Onion, Sliced
  • 2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil
  • Kosher Salt to Taste
  • Ground Pepper to Taste
  • Fresh Lemon Juice (about half of a lemon)

Step 1

Melt your 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in your large, pre-heated pan.

Step 2

Add your garlic, onions, salt and pepper to the melted coconut oil. Cook just enough so that the garlic puffs up and your onions start to become a little translucent. You may want to do this on a low-medium flame. 

Step 3

Add your sliced peppers and squash to the sauté party. Mix together and cook evenly until the crunch is cooked out of the peppers.

Step 4

It is time to add your Core-Strength Spinach to the veggie party. Mix your spinach and veggie friends all together until the spinach starts to cook down a tad. 

Step 5

Add your fresh lemon juice to the entire party. You will hear the noise turn up a notch. Cover with a lid for 1-2 minutes. This allows the steam that was created by your fresh lemon juice to cook down your spinach and it allows your other veggies to finish their workout. 

Step 6

Season with salt and pepper, and toss again. Serve warm or store in a glass meal prep container and head over to my Post-Meal Calorie Clean Up Before The Dishes.
