I’ve never quite understood why people don’t like their vegetables.  Vegetables are the mainstay of great health!  If you aren’t a veggie eater, consider adding delicious vegetables to your eating plan – they are so good and so good for you. A recent study found including 8-10 servings of vegetables and fruit per day is effective at reducing blood pressure!  Eat your medicine!

Vegetables contain SO many good-for-you vitamins and nutrients – they are a powerhouse of good nutrition.  I’m not so concerned by how you eat your veggies, just that you eat them!  I prefer fresh, and raw or lightly steamed, but frozen is okay, too.  Canned vegetables usually have their life cooked out of them, but if you need to use an occasional can of green beans or corn – go for it!

My favorites:

I could go on and on:  Asparagus, mushrooms, corn, carrots, celery, peas, green leafy veggies, broccoli, etc. etc.  The important thing to keep in mind is that vegetables cause no harm.  So, if you aren’t a veggie eater, think about adding just one to your eating plan this week, and then maybe a new one next week, and so on.  You might surprise yourself!

To Your Vitality!
