It’s not everyone’s favorite vegetable, but after reading this you’ll see there are some very good reasons to eat more spinach. Spinach is jam-packed with nutritious ingredients and that’s just one of the healthy reasons to eat more spinach. It’s also pretty versatile – baby leaves are good in salads, it makes for a good side dish, works really well with Indian spices and one of the most-favorite dishes in Greece is Spanakopita, a delicious filo parcel filled with spinach and feta (made in Italy too, but ricotta replaces the feta). Here are some very good reasons to eat more spinach (and not because Popeye says so!)...

1. Spinach is Highly Nutritious

With one cup of spinach, you have almost 20% of your RDA dietary fiber and the daily amount your body needs of vitamins A and K. In addition, you are also getting Magnesium, Manganese, Foliate, Protein, Calcium, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Potassium and Selenium. These are certainly compelling reasons to eat more spinach.
