National Eat Your Vegetables Day

by Dr. Kathleen Hall

Vegetables are an important part of a balanced diet. Do you eat enough vegetables on a daily basis? It is definitely time to eat these delicious summer vegetables. Yummy fresh corn, tomatoes, green beans and squash are everywhere.   For National Eat Your Vegetables Day pick up some fresh veggies from a local stand and go online to discover new recipes.  Add a marinade and grill or shred cheese on your favorite veggies and enjoy! You can eat them cooked, raw, or dried. And be sure to eat vegetables from the five subcategories, including beans and peas, dark green vegetables, red and orange vegetables, and starchy vegetables.
