Ode to Spinach: Spinach is one of the coolest veggies EVER! WHY?
Well, for starters: it's yummy.
It makes you strong like Popeye (really!)
The health benefits are amazing!
Spinach is a rich source of Vitamins A, C, and E, several antioxidants, folic acid, lutein, and rubiscolins (no one knows what rubiscolins do, but the name is cool). Antioxidants are important in cancer prevention.
As I write I realize that I should be studying, not blogging. I will add to this post later. Point of the story: EAT SPINACH, IT'S SUPER DUPER GOOD FOR YOU!!! YEAH! (and it's fat-free, carb-free, and, like most veggies, it keeps you "regular". yeah. I said it.)
