Spinach became hugely popular in America thanks to a guy called Popeye. Popeye was a comic book sailor known for his strength. His secret weapon? Spinach. At the approach of trouble, he chugged a can of spinach, which caused his muscles to bulge. Try searching for Popeye cartoons on YouTube, the cartoons are a little old now but the superpower of spinach is still true today! Spinach is a good source of iron, which helps our red blood cells to transport oxygen around the body. Spinach can be steamed, boiled or sautéed. It is the perfect addition to eggs for a veg powered breakfast or as a veg booster to stir fry – you’ll be amazed how a big pile of fresh leaves wilts down to a spoonful or two of spinach. To store, wrap in paper towels and keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days, checking every couple of days and replacing the paper towel if it gets damp. You can easily freeze spinach for up to 6 months, too! Just wash, dry thoroughly and freeze in freezer bags or containers.
