Celebrate Spinach Day With These Meal Options

By Brandi Goodman

Spinach Day arrives near the end of March. Celebrate the occasion with a meal that includes the leafy green. It's beneficial for both your body and mind thanks to all the vitamins and minerals it includes. You'll get a hefty dose of health benefits when you eat the vegetable.

Spinach Artichoke Zucchini Bites

Combining all three of these vegetables into one delicious appetizer is a great way to pack in the nutrition. Each of them offers their own assortment of vitamins and minerals that make them worthwhile. The zucchini slices should serve as your base while you mix diced spinach and artichokes with low-fat cream cheese and Parmesan with red pepper flakes and garlic to bake on top. The creamy concoction will be a crowd-pleaser.

Creamed Spinach Stuffed Salmon

Fish is beneficial for your brain and skin, in particular. The antioxidants and protein you get from salmon can keep aging effects to a minimum. Stuff creamed spinach into some salmon and you have a filling and vitamin-packed meal that can greatly benefit your health.

Creamed Spinach Chicken

Not everyone likes fish. Try the recipe with chicken instead. Chicken offers plenty of protein as well. Stick with a baked version and you'll keep the calorie content down. This version puts the creamed spinach on top of the chicken rather than inside it as with the salmon.

Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Bagels

Bagels are a popular breakfast choice, but not many versions are as good for you as you'd like. Most provide more calories and carbs than they need. Opt for a whole grain bagel with cheesy spinach artichoke and you'll be getting lots of calcium, Vitamin D, protein, and other nutrients in the mix. It will make for a better breakfast to start your day, and can even work at lunch or dinner time. 

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Zucchini

Stuff zucchini sticks with low-fat cream cheese, seasoning, and spinach. Wrap just one piece of turkey bacon around it and you have yourself a delicious and nutritious dish. You can add artichokes to the mixture as well for a meal reminiscent of the zucchini bites. You'll get plenty of vitamins and protein from this option.

No matter the meal you choose, you'll be gaining plenty of nutrients from the spinach-centered dish. This leafy green is incredibly beneficial for your health and well-being. Eat it year-round, and not just on Spinach Day, for a chance at improved wellness.
