“I’m strong to the finish because I eats me spinach…”
Admit it – you immediately knew who said that quote. Along with mom always encouraging you to eat more greens, many of us grew up with Popeye showing us that just a mouthful of spinach will give you superhuman strength!
Ok, while it may not give you full Popeye-like capabilities, this leafy green has been attributed to:
- Being chock full of nutrients
- Building strong bones
- Promoting cardiovascular health
- Improving brain function
- Working to combat ovarian, prostate, and breast cancer
With all the health benefits attributed to spinach, we see why Popeye (and mom) wanted us to eat more! Want a delicious way to load up on Spinach? Try our Mandarin Spinach with Caramelized Walnuts Salad, available throughout March! This salad is also vegan and gluten-free!
