National Spinach Day  

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always March 26

National Spinach Day celebrates, healthy and nutritious spinach greens. Popeye the Sailor touted the value of spinach. Nutritionists agree, that Popeye is 100% correct!

 For some odd reason, spinach gets a bad reputation. Many people shy away from spinach. Some people will not even try it, no matter how it's prepared. There are so many ways to eat spinach, you've just gotta give it a try.  We suggest you slip some spinach greens into your usual salads, just a little. Chop a little up and put it into soups, stews, or casseroles. You can do the same, when making cooked vegetables. Anyway you can introduce spinach to your favorite recipes, will help you and your family to lead a healthier, more nutritious life.   

Gardeners know that spinach is easy to grow. And, it's hardy. You can plant it as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring. Why, that's today in many parts of the country! More on Growing Spinach.

Celebrate today by:

1. Eating spinach. There's no shortage of recipes. It is in everything from soups to salads, casseroles, omelets, and much more. It can be eaten raw or cooked.

2. If you are a gardener, go out and plant some spinach.

Make Popeye happy, and eat some spinach today.

There is another day that we celebrate this healthy vegetable. It's Fresh Spinach Day, celebrated on July 16th.

Today's Laugher: "According to the latest poll, 73% of Americans believe the country is going in the wrong direction. But the good news is, that gas is so expensive we'll never get there.." - - Jay Leno
