Spinach is high in iron, and an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K. Beets contain powerful nutrient compounds that help protect against heart disease, birth defects and certain cancers, especially colon cancer. Walnuts and feta cheese add the protein needed to round out this meal. Drizzle with olive oil for added health benefits such as antioxidants and a healthy digestive tract.
