Spinach King Lufefe Nomjana

Green Living with the Spinach King

Who hasn’t watched Popeye as a young child and wanted to be instantaneously strong? Except, that apparently meant consuming large amounts of spinach and to some, that is a difficult ask.

Khayelitsha’s Lufefe Nomjana is our very own Popeye, using his love for spinach to get his fellow men and women to appreciate this vegetable for what it is.

He believes it’s a vegetable that should be consumed on a daily basis. Packed with phytochemicals, high in Vitamin A, C, Iron, Magnesium and Potassium, it’s a fast growing vegetable that can be grown throughout the year.

With the Spinach King business, Lufefe aims to educate his community about healthy living and the role your diet and exercise plays in your life.

We’re definitely dishing up spinach seconds next time!

If you want to try something different, take a look at his delicious spinach fries recipe here that you can have as a side or just on its own – it’s that good!
