Organic Baby Spinach
Putting the Super in Superfood
For all the talk about “super” foods and “super” greens in particular, there’s one that routinely gets left out of the conversation. Spinach. Spinach may not be hip or trendy, but it’s a stalwart standby that always lives up to expectations. Cultivated stateside since the early 19th century, spinach had been a European staple for a thousand years before that. It was in the 20th century that spinach first got its “superfood” status – from a comic strip character, no less! And while it was silly when Popeye’s muscles suddenly bulged after eating a can of spinach, there was also, in fact, some truth to that story.
At Trader Joe’s, we have Fresh Organic Baby Spinach that definitely passes the Popeye test – and without the can, thankfully. It’s loaded with nutrients, tastes great and is good for you any way you decide to enjoy it. In a salad with blue cheese and candied walnuts, in a hearty homemade soup, blended into a smoothie (use a powerful blender), or sautéed with a touch of olive oil and garlic, our Organic Baby Spinach will not disappoint. It’s pre-washed and ready to eat, though it never hurts to rinse with cold water just to refresh the leaves a bit. Each six ounce bag of Trader Joe’s Fresh Organic Baby Spinach is $1.99**, every day, a “super” price for this undeniably healthy* green treat.
*Good source of iron and rich in the antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin C – how can you go wrong?
**Ounces, price and availability may vary by region. Currently Trader Joe's Organic Spinach is $1.99 in our West Coast and Texas stores, and $2.29 in our East Coast, Midwest and South East stores.
