Intricately textured and supercharged with vitamins and minerals, spinach and almonds are a brilliant option for enlivening your grain bowl or wrap! Spinach offers a subtle but palpable lightness, and the almonds give an unexpected, enticing crunch.

Also, they contain an eye-popping number of beneficial nutrients.

Spinach and almonds not only give our grains, wraps, and salads a massive dose of nutrition, the grains and wraps themselves make these two superfoods easier to eat. Spinach and almond’s vitamins A, E, and K are better absorbed with a bit of fat, such as in the avocado and cheese we include in many of our dishes. The iron in spinach is better absorbed when eaten with vinegar or citrus, like in our vinaigrettes.

We understand that the price of organic almonds and spinach may be challenging, as almonds are an expensive ingredient in the supermarket. We do our best to make our dishes affordable without compromising quality, and we offer this option because we believe in its superb character.

Spinach and almonds make for particularly good additions to our Yummy In My Tummy wrap, Quinoa wrap, Chipotle Sunrise wrap, and our Curry Don’t Stop wrap. Our Curry Soul Good bowl and the Chipotle Goddess bowl are also enhanced by this superfood duo.

If you are in the mood for an utterly satisfying meal, try adding spinach and almonds to give your body some extra love and care!
