Today is National Spinach Day!

Now we’ve come to the life-talk part. Let’s be real, sometimes spinach doesn’t taste very good, and that’s probably why it has a little bit of a bad reputation. After all, overcooked bitter greens taste like sadness and those great attempts at “all natural energy drinks” usually result in a horrifically chunky concoction which we really don't want to talk about. Therefore, we dove into the Joonbug.com kitchen and played around with some ideas until we produced two delicious recipes created for just you! Bring our green friend into your world, we promise it won’t bite.
