So you've decided to ditch the pre-packaged spinach in favor the lush bundles you see nestled amongst the other greens in the produce aisle. Or perhaps you're at the farmers market or in your own garden and looking to harvest a pound for dinner. Here's how you pick up a pound of spinach without the aid of a scale.
Educate Your Eye: 1 Pound of Spinach
One pound of spinach (with the stems still attached) is about two large bundles or bouquets, each only slightly too large to wrap one hand around. Think about holding the contents of two boxes of spaghetti in your hands; that's about the size of one bundle. You'll need two of those bundles for one pound.

Our eyes are one of our greatest, most useful tools in the kitchen. They can help us size up everything from the weight of vegetables to the doneness of meat.
