July 16th is National Fresh Spinach Day. No canned or frozen spinach today. Some people say not cooked spinach either but we are going to be a little more lenient here. 🤷🏾

I happen to be a spinach lover from a long way back. I don’t know if it was because of Popeye and this spinach-induced strength. Or maybe because I was told that spinach would help my eyesight. Perhaps it was because I thought spinach tasted better than collard greens. Yes, I am a Southern girl — don’t @ me!  😁 

Whatever the reason, I have carried that love into my adult life. I have tried to convert my family — to little effect. Husband and children — all strongly dislike spinach.

But I am still trying…maybe this recipe will do the trick.

Today’s recipe to celebrate National Fresh Spinach Day is Keto Creamed Spinach.

It’s great for the entire family — if you are on a special diet or not. With the cream and cream cheese, the creamed spinach dish is not low fat so keep that in mind.
