Fresh Spinach Day: A Holiday Popeye Would Love!

When it comes to holidays, July 16 is all about food. Not only is it National Corn Fritters Day, it is also Fresh Spinach Day!

Besides being high in iron and low in calories, spinach is also a great source of fiber, protein, calcium, and vitamins C and A. While your muscles may not bulge out of your shirt after eating one serving, spinach does promote muscle growth. Spinach not only helps build muscle, but also helps reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and osteoporosis. It’s no wonder Popeye loved spinach.

In honor of Fresh Spinach Day, why not whip up one or two delicious spinach recipes?
