March 26 – Spinach Day

Posted on March 26, 2015

Do kids these days still know about Popeye the Sailor Man? He was probably the greatest spokesman for a disgusting food ever in the history of the world, since he solved every problem by popping open and downing a can of spinach, which instantly and magically made him mega-strong!

Wait!!! Did I just dare to call spinach disgusting? And on Spinach Day, too???

No, no I did not. I said that canned spinach is disgusting. I love spinach, generally—but I do not like it canned!

Celebrate one of the world's healthiest foods—a vegetable that is low in fat and carbohydrates but high in vitamins and minerals. Spinach has been shown to protect against certain kinds of cancer, against some cardiovascular and bone problems, and against digestive-tract inflammation. It is packed with antioxidants and other nutrients. It's basically a super food!

Here are some ways I do like spinach. Try eating spinach three different ways today, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
