Finish with Spinach

If you are of a certain age you probably remember the Popeye the sailor man cartoons.  His claim to a strong finish was the consumption of spinach.  Did you know that spinach has very high levels of zinc, iron, and Vitamins A and C?  Though spinach isn’t thought of in conjunction with the cold and flu season, it does have superfood powers.  In fact, it is one of the few vegetables that can increase in nutritional value once cooked because it has a high water content and ability to reduce to about a quarter in size when cooked. It is a super dense nutrient food with antioxidant compounds and may help with brain function. Spinach should be a vital food used year round and it just may help prevent catching nasty stuff during the cold and flu season!
