Tender, fresh spinach is delicious in salads, pasta, soups and dips and is an easy, healthy addition to many meals. Plus it's versatile—spinach is equally tasty raw or cooked. And spinach teems with important nutrients, such as folate, vitamin E and lutein, to keep your body strong.
Folate is necessary for the production of new cells, including red blood cells. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, particularly in protecting cell membranes from damage, and scientists hypothesize that it has a role in immune function, DNA repair, the formation of red blood cells and vitamin K absorption. Lutein may be able to reverse some of the symptoms of age-related macular degeneration.
Eat well and stay strong with these delicious, healthy spinach recipes.
