While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Go green - March 26 is National Spinach Day!

This leafy green packs a punch with nutrients, including folate, iron, calcium and vitamins A, B6, C, E and K.

There are countless ways to enjoy spinach that will leave you feeling strong to the finish. Try it creamed, sautéed with olive oil and garlic, or tossed into pasta. You can even serve it raw; a fresh spinach salad is an easy and customizable lunch or side dish.

How many leaves can you turn into a delicious meal today?

    Lutein was traditionally used in chicken feed to provide the yellow color of broiler chicken skin. Polled consumers viewed yellow chicken skin more favorably than white chicken skin.

    Spinach was a superfood before superfoods were even popular. Look at Popeye, he knew what he was talking about. One cup of fresh spinach provide 75% RDA of vitamin A; spinach is rich in vitamin c and very high in vitamin K; Spinach is a good source of minerals, including iron, calcium and zinc; and folate. Spinach is rich in lutein - an antioxidant that helps protect your eyes; it is good to help fight against many ailments of the eyes including – cataracts and macular degeneration. I'm learning every day about how God has provided us with so much good food and herbs. I also write about different superfoods and how good foods can actually heal us in my blog Food as Medicine here – if you'd care to read.

    I love fresh spinach, on pizza, in eggs, in soups, awesome in smoothies!

    I just make a traditional caesar salad at home with Spinach leaves instead of romaine, and psychologically it seems healthier, but basically tastes the same.
