Savory Tahini Spinach Savory Tahini Spinach

Git yer Popeye on, and load up on your spinach. Quick, yummy, easy? We gotchu!

Spinach is an easy green to find year-round and a nutritional powerhouse. Maybe not the way Popeye showed it to be, but enough to make it worth cooking some up for yourself!

Spinach is a great source of iron which helps in the function of red blood cells which helps move oxygen around the body, energy production, and DNA synthesis. Spinach is also an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate as well as manganese, magnesium, iron and vitamin B2.

Tahini is another great health addition. Tahini is nutrient-rich, high in antioxidants, has antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory compounds, and much more.
