Popeye had it right!

I sneak spinach into almost every meal. Just one cup of spinach has all of your recommended Vitamins A and K! I add it to a smoothie for breakfast and sneak it into almost all of my sauces and sides. Any salad is better with bright lovely, spinach!

New Alternative for Stir-Fry

Instead of cooking up brown rice as the base to toss your stir-fry on -- go for the extra green veggie instead. Put a layer of fresh spinach on your dinner plate and top that with your stir-fry. More greens, less starch, but nicely filling.

Easy veggie drink

I take 8 oz of V8 and a handful of baby spinach leaves and put them in the blender. Looks green but tastes like a V8. Drink your salad!

Easy way to get extra fiber and another veggie serving

I always add 2.5 ounces of fresh spinach per serving to the boiling water the last minute of cooking my pasta. Adds another extra serving of veggies, gives you tons of fiber , and all of the other good stuff that spinach has. Best of all you can't really tell its there or taste it! My kids eat it up!

Eating Spinach

I'm not a huge spinach fan, but I know that it's so, so good for you. So I started eating salads with mostly iceberg lettuce and just a little spinach chopped up very small. I gradually increased the spinach content as I got used to it. Now I can eat it no problem.

Prolonging the life of greens

I buy the big containers of spinach and spring mix. To prolong their life, I wrap two paper towels into them by gently lifting the bottom and then covering the top. I will also wrap a damp paper towel around my romaine lettuce to keep ithe leaves from turning brown as well. Works great!

Pre-Washed Baby Spinach

I keep a box of prewashed baby spinach in the fridge. If I'm having a can of soup, I throw in a couple fistfuls. Same thing with pasta sauce, scrambled eggs, and I also use it for sandwiches instead of lettuce. Great way to get iron and a serving of veggies!
