Nutrition Bite:Spinach – Popeye was definitely onto something with his love affair with spinach for good health and vitality! Spinach is high in carotenoids  (which your body can turn into Vitamin A), Vitamin C & Folic acid. It is also a great plant-based source of both iron and calcium. “I’m strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach, I’m Popeye the Sailor Man!” In this case, you’ll be drinking your spinach for good health…but cheers to that!
