Spinach Facts...Did You Know?
C and K!
One cup of fresh spinach or 1/2 cup of cooked spinach provides a good source of vitamin C and an excellent source of vitamin K. Vitamin C is necessary for growth and development, and vitamin K works to stop cuts and scrapes from bleeding, as well as build strong bones.
Spinach is best stored in an open plastic bag in the refrigerator. If purchasing unwashed spinach, rinse leaves in cool water and pat dry just before serving.
Serve It Up!
Craft a salad with fresh spinach, and add chopped fresh or frozen spinach to lasagna, pizza, casseroles, or soups. Stir-fry fresh, canned, or frozen spinach, or try spinach sautéed with eggs and topped with chopped tomatoes.
