Each month the Wauwatosa Health Department will be highlighting a fresh fruit or vegetable in order to encourage healthy eating. This month's Harvest of the Month is spinach.

Serving Ideas:

  • Serve in soup
  • Bake into egg dishes
  • Serve in salad with feta cheese and strawberries
  • Use in vegetable lasagna
  • Make green smoothies

Benefits:

  • Loaded with Vitamins A, C, and K, as well as folate, iron, and other essential minerals.
  • Benefits eye health, reduces oxidative stress, helps prevent cancer and reduce blood pressure levels

Shopper's Tips

  • Spinach is widely available through the colder months.
  • Although it is one of the healthiest foods, it is consistently ranked high on the list of the most pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables. Buy organic when possible.
