March 26th: National Spinach Day – Three (or more) “Popeye Approved” Ways to Use Spinach

March 26, 2019, is National Spinach Day!  

I think spinach gets a bad rap.  Personally, I love it.  I use it in my smoothies, I make muffins with it, I put it on sandwiches.  It’s a great little veggie.

Popeye the Sailor Man approves of National Spinach Day!

Here are mine and Popeye’s favorite ways to use Spinach:


  • Kid Approved Spinach Muffins
  • Fruit and Spinach Smoothie
  • Add it to your salads – it’s more nutritious than iceberg lettuce
  • Use it to replace lettuce in a BLT sandwich
  • Add it to your sub sandwich (this is my favorite! Even at Subway – I get baby spinach on my sub instead of lettuce)

What’s your favorite way to use Spinach?


In case you don’t already have the Popeye The Sailor Man song stuck in your head, here it is!  “I’m strong to the finish, ‘cuz I eat me spinach.  I’m Popeye the Sailor Man!”
