Hey, everybody. I'm Mareya, The Fit Foodie, and today I'm going to talk to you about the differences in spinach. Now you can buy fresh spinach from your produce department or the farmer's market. You can get chopped spinach in the frozen section. Or you can buy it in a can. Now there's a big difference in nutrition and sodium which is a big hot button these days in all of these. So in the frozen spinach in half a cup you've got about 200 milligrams of sodium or salt in that serving. Now a half a cup of the canned spinach is almost 400. So that's double pretty much. In the fresh spinach one cup is only about 24 milligrams of sodium and that's naturally occurring. Now the other great thing about using fresh spinach is that the texture of the leaves lends itself to so many different things. You can incorporate it into a salad. You can saute it with different herbs. Delicious, has a nice bite to it. The frozen spinach better usage for it incorporating it into baked goods. If you're putting it into a souffle or something that's already cooked that's a good opportunity too. But the consistency of it you are not going to get those nice whole leaves like you will with the fresh. And then the canned spinach same thing. Sitting in that solution it's going to make it a little soggy, a little wilty. You want to use it in more baked items, egg dishes for example. But the clear winner nutritionally, texture wise, taste wise is the fresh.
