My beliefs is no matter how you slice it, moderation is key. Overdosing on spinach or coffee or alcoholic beverages, or eating mounds of pasta, loaves of bread, lbs of sugary stuff, can't be a positive health benefit. If people don't care about their health, go to it. My dad didn't care about his eating habits and lived 95 yrs but I wouldn't want to be in his shoes for anything.

I am guessing its a doctors recommendation -

May I ask why they want you consuming so much coffee / caffeine daily ? Seems like a lot. I drink a couple cups of coffee daily.

But it seems the general consensus is that caffeine / coffee is bad for you ?
Yes, doctors orders.
Results from my lab work helped him make that decision. In doing some research, coffee does seemed to be recommended.

No way do I drink the 5 cups of coffee a day.

This is rather mindboggling. MD's decision was based on what labs? I just can't imagine a doctor calling for this dosage. Ummm, maybe and just maybe someone with low blood pressure.

Good health will never be as easy as finding one food or group of foods and eating them like there is no tomorrow.

There is plenty of nutrition websites where one can educate themselves in lieu listening to Dr. this, website this, etc. and letting someone else do your thinking.

You are so right!!

I'm not sure I understand...how does your eating a sandwich with spinach impact hub's bowel?

Not trying to be snarky here but why would you give up something you like that doesn't impact anyone else's diet? Make two sandwiches; one with spinach, one without.

Of course, when it comes to a meal that both of you will eat, leaving out the spinach is the kind thing to do, but a sandwich?

I was once married to a man whose only vegetables were corn and baked beans. Notice I said "once married". lol

I am not a huge fan of spinach when it comes to greens, so no big loss if I don't eat them much.
