MY TRUTH ABOUT VEGGIES . . .

Veggies. . . when I first got married, never saw them in my fridge, after my first child was born, fridge was full, but I never ate them! Now, I love them! I love them so much that I prefer to plant veggies in my yard over flowers. I could and often do eat them for breakfast. Veggies can be eaten raw, cooked, dipped, in salads, casseroles, they can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, as a snack. They help fight diseases, provide us with much needed vitamins, they add colour to a dish, and they taste good too! My newest discovery for vegetables is how they can amazingly add bulk to your plate and make you forget that your plate is 3/4 full of vegetables rather than pasta and you feel fuller after. Lets not forget that you are getting many other benefits along with it. So why is it that we know just how important vegetables are to us yet we tend to over look them? VEGGIES ARE MY NEW BEST FRIEND . . . (rice noodles, bok choy, celery, red/green peppers, garlic, onions and snow peas with chicken)

    I didn’t start eating vegetables until I was 23 years old. Even then it was only romaine lettuce and broccoli covered in grated cheese. Now I can’t imagine life without the variety of vegetables in my fridge.
