Celebrate National Spinach Day with Popeye’s Favorite Veggie

It’s National Spinach Day in the U.S., but this leafy green vegetable is enjoyed around the world 365 days a year, with practically every international cuisine including it in their recipe repertoire.

Spinach is loaded with good-for-you nutrients like potassium, iron, folate and vitamins A and K. It even provides vitamin E, calcium and zinc. When combined with high vitamin C foods, like tomatoes or lemon juice, spinach provides a powerful infusion of iron too.
