It is not for anything that spinach was the muscular Popeye’s preferred nutrition when fighting an adversary. The green leaves definitely pack in more nutrients and very few calories (that seems to be a no-brainer, they are green leaves!). Research has hailed this green for helping keep everything from cancer, asthma to lifestyle disorders at bay.
What’s better, the spinach is combined in a soup that has silken texture. Slurp away for an eating experience.
