Pork Cutlets with Sauteed Spinach Recipe

I’ve been trying to find more ways to incorporate some greens in my diet.  I’ve enjoyed eating salads for a long time, as well as broccoli, and green peppers- however, I never really ate Spinach until fairly recently.  I only enjoy fresh spinach when I do have the chance to eat it.  Varieties of canned or frozen spinach only take me back to childhood memories of “Popeye”, and I just don’t want to go there- not to mention that canned spinach is disgusting! My grocery store had fresh spinach on sale yesterday so it was the perfect to time to cook some up. This delicious pork cutlets with sauteed spinach recipe was relatively fast to cook due to the thin nature of the pork, and the sauteed spinach was tender and well seasoned (if I do say so myself). Spinach is extremely healthy for you and filled with antioxidants, which makes it perfect for incorporating into your diet. Look at how lovely and radiantly green the spinach came out!
