The Ready Pac
Ready Pac sells Ready Fixin's prewashed Spinach in plastic bags that can go right into the microwave. Two to three minutes later, you open and serve. It hasn't been this easy to eat spinach since Popeye squeezed his out of the can and into his mouth.
Each one-cup serving of cooked spinach (a third of a package) provides 140 percent of a day's worth of vitamin A, 30 percent of a day's folic acid, 15 percent of a day's iron and vitamin C (the label mistakenly lists vitamin C at 70 percent), and 10 percent of a day's potassium -- all for only 20 fat-free calories.
You also get lutein, which may help protect your eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration. (While the oxalic acid in spinach means that you probably won't absorb all of its calcium and iron, that's a small price to pay for such a power-packed vegetable.)
Dress up your dish with some sauteed garlic, low-fat tub margarine, lemon juice, or lite soy sauce. But because Ready Pac starts with baby spinach, the tender, non-bitter leaves are good enough to eat as is.
