Megan Hanson’s Petite Spinach Frittatas Recipe

If you ask us, a cup of leafy greens a day is what actually keeps the doctor away. High in vitamins A and K, calcium, iron, folate, and a slew of other nutrients, spinach is one of the healthiest foods you can put on your grocery list.

It’s a known cancer-fighter, and it promotes healthy bones, skin, and hair. On top of that, spinach is one of the most versatile veggies and can be added to just about any dish – think smoothies, pastas, soups, dips, stir-fries, quesadillas, and more. Whether consumed cooked or raw, this leafy green is the perfect complement to any meal.
