As I find lots of unwanted pork cutlets in my fridge, stir-frying pork and this river spinach might be a good dinner for us. Well, since we have lots of expenses these days. I decided to create a 5 dollar meal challenge for my wife and my daughter. …………Did you know that kangkong or river spinach is rich in iron, calcium, phosphorus, carotene, sitosterol, protein, vitamins A, B1 and C and has a lot of health beneficial amino acids. Other pharmacological effects includes antitoxin, laxative, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, homeostatic and sedatives (sleeping effects). Water or river spinach has a good effect in the intestines as it has purgative properties because of its fiber content. It also acts as insulin-like properties to control blood sugar for diabetes prevention.
