Popeye Was Right

veggie protienWhen people consider protein the first thing that comes to mind is a big steak. One of those Texas ribeyes sizzling and thick grizzle on the side, marbled throughout, with just a little pink in the center. However, what happens when the fact that spinach has more protein than steak is discovered? Popeye was right.


Of the top 10 vegetable proteins 6 beat out steak! The number 1 being the secret to Popeye’s strength, SPINACH! Now the caveat is that it takes 1lb of it to get 13g. It may sound like a large amount but not when it is in a smoothie or broken into a few meals. It all comes down to getting healthy, start the day with a green smoothie with as much spinach as will fit with some apple, pineapple, or banana to make it sweeter. Another for lunch with a trusted supplement routine of a meal replacement shake and 6 oz steak dinner with raw veggies and a whole days worth of vitamins and minerals will make the the Better You as fit as a fiddle.

mnsProtein deficiency is often overlooked, since people and media tend to focus on one vitamin, mineral, or nutrient.


Health is an interconnected network of protein, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and micronutrients that are required daily and the modern farming system just does not allow food to cover. Get what you can from your foods (as close to the grower as possible) and supplement to round it out to bring the Better You to their prime. Overall…be like Popeye.

  1. Great post, Clifford. After I was diagnosed as protein depleted last fall, I’ve been learning so much about protein and about how I need to balance my macronutrients. I’m a work in progress but am extremely pleased with how far I’ve come! I’ll get new labs soon and am confident that I’m moving in the right direction. While I was eating “healthy” in the past, for me, I needed more protein, fewer carbs, and no dairy, gluten, or egg. And thank goodness for my Popeye smoothie every morning!
