Spinach with Cranberries and Almonds

Bright, vibrant-looking spinach leaves are not only more appealing to the eye but more nourishing as well.  Spinach has been called the world’s healthiest food.   We all know that Popeye made himself super strong by eating spinach, but you may be surprised to learn that he may also have been helping to protect himself against inflammatory problems, stress-related problems, cardiovascular problems, bone problems, and cancers at the same time.  I wanted to make a spinach dish that was colorful and tasty for holidays as well as any day.  I added a cranberry sauce and almonds to the spinach sauté.  Wow!  I hope you will enjoy this tasty version of spinach!
