Spinach

Spinach
Healthy wallop

From cultivation more than 2,000 years ago in ancient Persia, spinach spread among the world's cuisines, becoming entrenched in popular culture with 1929's Popeye the Sailor comics character. Spinach delivers a wallop of nutrients that can help fight cancer, promote heart and bone health, protect the brain from aging symptoms and protect against birth defects. With high amounts of vitamins A, C and K, iron, folate, maganese and Omega-3 fatty acids, the leafy green is fat-, saturated fat- and cholesterol-free, low in calories and a good source of fiber.

Handling Tips
Raw power

Choose fresh, crisp dark green leaves; avoid wilting, discolored spots and insect damage. Refrigerate, unwashed, in plastic bag up to 5 days; may be loosely wrapped in damp paper towel. Wash thoroughly by swishing in warm water to remove sand; pat dry. Both leaves and stems are edible; however, to remove leaf stem, fold in half and pull stem toward top of leaf. To retain the powerful line-up of nutrients in spinach, use raw in salads, on sandwiches or as juice. When cooking, do so quickly (stir-fry, saute, steam).
