16 July – Fresh Spinach Day

 

Fresh Spinach Day - Elizabeth Place

Popeye was right about spinach: dark green, leafy vegetables are the healthiest food on the planet. As whole foods go, they offer the most nutrition per calorie.
~ Michael Greger

It’s had a reputation as being an incredibly healthy plant for as long as Popeye has been popping open cans and giving Bluto a black eye. Spinach is probably one of the alternately most loved and reviled vegetables to ever reach our plates. Fresh Spinach Day is here to celebrate this dark leafy green and all the ways you can prepare it so it’s wonderful!
