Health Tip: Popeye Wasn't Wrong About Spinach
It offers many health benefits

(HealthDay News) -- Cartoon lore was correct about spinach being good for you. The green, leafy veggie is rich in essential vitamins and nutrients, and is a great source of fiber.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice about buying and preparing spinach:

  • For maximum nutrition, buy spinach fresh.
  • Frozen spinach, if fresh isn't available, will retain most of its nutrients.
  • Just before serving, always wash fresh spinach carefully.
  • Store unwashed spinach loosely in a plastic bag in the refrigerator's crisper, where it will last about four days.
