Leafy and green, spinach is a versatile superfood that is low in calories and fats and high in fiber and iron.
Just one cup gives you 56% of your daily value of Vitamin A and 14% of your daily value of Vitamin C, and there are plenty of simple and delicious ways to introduce it into your diet. It’s no wonder Popeye was such a fan!
Notes about Spinach:
How to Store Spinach:
If you have leftover uncooked spinach, the best way to store it is in a plastic bag or container lined with a dry paper towel. Avoid excess moisture, as this will cause the leaves to rot more quickly. If it’s stored correctly, you can keep it up to three weeks before it’s ready to toss.
Spinach is a hardy green that can endure cold temperatures, making it a great option in winter. If you have a yard (or even a big pot) you can give spinach growing a shot with a cool-season garden. Late winter is one of the best times to plant spinach, so start planning now!
