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.

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.
