Fresh Spinach Day
Date When Celebrated : July 16 th
Fresh Spinach Day is our opportunity to put healthier food into our diets.
Popeye the Sailor is right. Spinach is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It tastes good, and there are many recipes. Many people turn up their nose to it, without even trying it.
The reason for eating fresh spinach, is the nutritional value is highest, when it is fresh and uncooked.
Celebrate this day by introducing some fresh spinach to your meals today. You could start by mixing in some spinach into your garden salad. Your family may not even notice, but by doing so, you are making them healthier!
Gardeners know that spinach is easy to grow. And, it's hardy. You can plant it as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring. Why, that's today in many parts of the country! More on Growing Spinach.
There is another day that we celebrate this healthy vegetable. It's National Spinach Day, celebrated on March 26th. We think it is great that there are two days to celebrate this wonderful vegetable, and to encourage people to eat healthier.
