Every Month is Spinach Month at Raw from the Garden!
Many people now understand the nutritional value of eating spinach, which is one of nature's undisputed super foods. Raw from the Garden's recipe book has many yummy ways you can prepare spinach while still preserving its vital nutrients as a living food. Of course, spinach can form the basis of many delightful salads, in addition to lending itself to marinated recipes and raw soups. You can also try adding raw spinach to any savory processed recipe to increase its overall nutritional value. One special nutritional trick is to serve raw spinach along with a source of Vitamin C, such as tomatoes, peppers or citrus fruits. The Linus Pauling Institute claims that this practice improves your non-heme iron absorption from spinach, as does flavoring your spinach with citrus juices or raw apple cider vinegar.
