Description:This image depicts a close-up view of a metal colander filled with freshly-washed spinach leaves, which were now ready to be eaten raw in a delicious salad, or cooked into a stir-fry dish.
In addition to being tasty, spinach's popularity stems from its high nutritional value. Not only is spinach low in calories, it is also a good source of essential nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and folic acid, or folate, which is an important vitamin involved in proper neural tube formation in a pregnant woman’s developing fetus.
