Quick tip

If you have a bag of salad spinach that is approaching its best-by date, or starting to wilt and look pathetic, and you know you won't finish it before it spoils, just pop a clip on it ...

... and you'll have free-flowing shards of spinach, ready to use in any dish or green smoothie. I like to sprinkle it into my beaten eggs when making omelets, and add some feta cheese once the omelet is cooked.

It prevents waste, and creates a convenient way to eat more spinach! I hope this little tip helps someone.
