Spinach, pear and feta pasta salad NutriShield Multi Vitamins and MineralsDr Clayton says

Pasta is a healthy low fat source of both protein and complex carbohydrate, with an intermediate glycemic index.

Spinach contains Vitamin K, lutein, beta carotene and Vitamin C (anti-oxidants), and potassium which can help lower blood pressure, as well as folate. Yellow peppers are another good source of Vitamin C.

Pears are a good source of dietary fibre, essential for a healthy digestive system as well as being a good source of potassium and Vitamin C. Pear skin contains immuno stimulants similar to those in Echinacea and shiitake mushrooms.
