V is for vibrant vegetables

You already know you should eat more vegetables. You even know the reasons why.

Because they’ll help you lose weight. They’ll help protect you from heart disease. Stroke. High blood pressure. Cancer. Because they’ll help maintain good vision and a healthy digestive system.

Because when you eat more vegetables, you feel better. Your body works better. Your energy level goes up. Your skin glows.

But, you protest. Your family won’t eat them. My kid/wife/husband doesn’t like them, you say.

That’s no excuse not to serve them. Vegetables are easy to prepare, much less expensive than meat, and healthy besides. They belong at every meal, on every table, in every home.

And when vegetables are in season, like now, they are utterly beautiful.
