We're all trying to figure out ways to pack in the most fruits and vegetables in a day, but going with the creamed veggies may not be the best choice. Creamed corn, spinach, and cream of mushroom soup may be delicious, but the extra cream can really take away from the healthy factor.
If possible, go with the pure form of the veggie. This way you're still getting the benefits of the vegetable without the the added calories, sugar, sodium, and saturated fat that often come along with creamed veggies. One serving of creamed spinach could pack a whopping 280 calories, while one cup of regular cooked spinach only has 41 calories. Just add a drop of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice, and fresh cooked spinach makes a super tasty and healthy side.
