NATIONAL SPINACH DAY CELEBRATION

“I’m Popeye the sailor man. I’m strong to the fin-ich cause I eats me spinach …” Remember that cartoon jingle? Bulging with muscles that certainly impressed Olive Oyl while scaring the dickens out of Bluto, Popeye regularly touted the value of eating spinach in his cartoons and today nutritionists will tell you he was 100 percent correct. So on National Spinach Day, Tuesday, March 26, be sure to stop by Evergreen Market in Greenville for a spinach tasting extravaganza that will include samples of fresh cooked spinach, house made spinach dips, spinach salads and more. Whether it’s fresh, frozen or canned, it is incredibly good for you regardless of how it’s prepared and the knowledgeable staff at Evergreen Market is going to share some of their serving ideas.
