Eat Your Vegetables Day - 2011

Remember when you were a kid and your parents always told you that "you have to eat your vegetables." They were right. Vegetables are essential if you want to live a longer, healthier life. Not to mention, they are also delicious!

There are many ways to celebrate Eat Your Vegetables Day. You can substitute vegetables in the place of a junk food snack, or better yet, try being a vegetarian for the whole day. Perhaps the best way to celebrate is by preparing a large salad dinner for your family, complete with everyone's favorite vegetables. After all, celebrating with family is better than celebrating alone! 

As Granny said for years, 'eat healthy and balanced meals each and every day!'

  1. This is a good day to celebrate vegetables in the south. Everyone who has a garden is busy gathering crops and sharing with friends and family. I was lucky to get some squash, peas and tomatos...almost got a cucumber, but that was my dad's only one, and I didnt feel right taking that one!
