National Spinach Day
When is National Spinach Day? This holiday is always celebrated on March 26
National Spinach Day is today. This March 26 holiday celebrates healthy and nutritious spinach greens. Popeye the Sailor touted the value of spinach. Nutritionists agree that Popeye is 100% correct! Spinach is one of the healthiest, most nutritious foods you can eat. You should eat it on a regular basis.
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 sneak 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, which will help you and your family to lead a healthier, more nutritious life.
Gardeners know the value of spinach. And, they know it is very fast and easy to grow. Spinach is also hardy. A light frost will not harm the plant and it enhances the flavor. 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.
Make Popeye happy and eat some spinach today.
