    Plus spinach also contains other compounds that actually inhibit the absorption of iron. Not to mention all the pesticides.

    The good news is, plenty of vitamin A, vitamin K, fiber, folic acid, and calcium.
  • That headline reminded me of an old childhood ditty:

    I'm Popeye the Sailor Man
    I live in a garbage can
    I turned on the heater
    And burned off my peter
    I'm Popeye the Sailor Man

    I learned a regional variant...

    He is P the SM
    He lives in a garbage can
    He turned on the switches
    And burned off his britches
    He is P the SM.
    TOOT TOOT!

    Somewhere way deep in my subconscious is something like....

    While cooking his streudel
    He burned off his noodle

    And was there one that went

    He heated the griddle
    And toasted his diddle...

    And of course TOOT TOOT at the end.

  • Many times times at the spinach festival in Alma, AR.  Wouldn't say good times, but definitely times.

  • Popeye is one if my spiritual mentors. He never lets bullies get away with their bs.
