Does anyone eat raw spinach here or do you all stick to canned or cooked spinach?
I've been eating a Spinach salad for the past 3 nights and I WITHOUT A DOUBT prefer the raw spinach salad over the cooked spinach any day of the week.  If anyone has tried this, have you had any success?

I agree, it tastes better raw but it tears my gut up. I'm not even going to risk it now that I'm better.
