Spinach is one of the most nutrient-dense foods in existence. A single cup is a great source of calcium and iron, and it contains far more vitamin K than the daily allowance, as well as high doses of vitamin A and magnesium. Spinach, unlike most other dark leafy greens, is actually pretty neutral from a flavor perspective. As result, it makes a fantastic base for a green juice or smoothie. Baby spinach is also a wonderful addition to any salad.
Helpful tip, do not wash spinach before storing, as the exposure to water encourages spoilage. Place spinach in a plastic bag and wrap the bag tightly around the spinach squeezing out as much of the air as possible. Store in the refrigerator, where it will keep for up to 5 days.
