Don't Hate Your Veggies!

Really hate veggies? Relax. If you love fruits, eat plenty of
them; they are just as healthy (especially colorful ones such as
oranges, mangoes, and melons). There are some easy ways to get
in your daily veggie servings of 3-5 helpings as recommended.
The friendliest is to buy V-8 juice. There is no way you can
object to this delicious, vitamin packed 4 ounce drink. Don't
forget that vegetable soup counts as a vegetable. If prices
climb up on you in off season, as they do me, stock up on frozen
vegetables when on sale. They are fine thrown into a crock pot,
or another simple way to cook them is in the microwave or a
stir fry on stove top. The good news is the peeling and chopping
is already done for you. Who objects to salads? Spend the extra
few pennies to buy salad mixes that are ready to eat. I am
amazed at the wonderful blends they have, and in actuality some
are less inexpensive with the dressing included and extras than
to prepare it yourself. Don't forget that many vegetables are
considered calorie free foods. A portion may be under 20
calories (eggplant, cucumber and radishes, to name a few). If
you are fortunate to have a sunny plot, do take advantage by
growing your own vegetables. Nothing, I repeat, nothing tastes
as good as fresh off the vine. What are you waiting for? Fill up
on vegetables and you will be trimming down in no time.

Have a blessed day!

I tried a new veggie yesterday -- swiss chard. The farmer we get fresh produce from brought some last week. I just had a small bite, but it tasted really good. The group ate all that I fixed so I guess it was good!

I have yet to try it, but if it is a green it will be a go for me. I'll look and see what availability and price is.
