Happy "Eat Your Vegetables Day"!


Moms, dads, and health-conscious people will be happy to know that today is Eat Your Vegetables Day! There’s no better time than now to purchase fresh produce to serve cooked your favorite way. Steamed, boiled, roasted, broiled, or baked, vegetables are good for you.

If you have finicky kids, bring them to the grocery store and let them help select fresh veggies. Encourage them to choose a vegetable in each color, which will provide a wide variety of nutrients. Then when it’s time to prepare dinner, get creative and celebrate!

In my latest book Sweet Baklava, I have Greek recipes that include fresh vegetables – both cooked and raw. Look for Sweet Baklava anywhere books are sold. You can find it at Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, Cokesbury, Family Christian, CBD, or Amazon.
