Eat healthy on a budget
  • Add spinach to any fruit smoothie. Fresh spinach is rich in vitamins A, vitamin C and folate. You won’t even taste the spinach but will get extra nutrients!
Be food safe
  • Wash spinach thoroughly under cool running water before use.
  • Store spinach in refrigerator at 40oF or below.
