National Spinach Day

Today is National Spinach Day!  Who knew???  And of course, today is one of the RARE days I don’t have a giant tub of it sitting in my fridge.  (Last time I was at Wegmans they were out of the all-baby spinach, so I settled for an arugula, radicchio and spinach blend, and I’m almost all out!)

Otherwise, I’d be eating green ALL DAY.

Check out WHY spinach is such a powerhouse food!

I use it almost every day in salads, on sandwiches or just IN things, like soups or smoothies.

In the interest of time (I have things I need to do today!), here are some links to some basic spinach recipes and some of my favorites!

Basic Sauteed Spinach

My favorite Spinach and Strawberry Salad 

Berry Spinach Smoothie (it’s not green!)

Baked Spinach

Creamed Spinach–Andrew’s favorite!  Serve with steak 🙂

Gotta go…must get the dog on a walk before I head off to school!  Bring on the green 🙂  (At least when I started this post I was wearing a green t-shirt…)
