Eat Your Veggies!

By Lauren Scott, Arizona Farm Bureau Intern

This is the first installment in a series

It can be hard to fit vegetables in your diet, especially if you aren’t exactly sure how to prepare them. It makes it even worse if you just aren’t a fan of veggies. I happen to be a vegetable lover, and want to help you out in your endeavor to get more good stuff into your diet! Vegetables aren’t something to be afraid of; in fact, they should be embraced and included in each meal of your day. Don’t worry, I’m not suggesting you eat salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, I’m just saying there is a way for you to include veggies without getting bored. I’ve come up with a list of my favorite Fill Your Plate articles that focus on vegetables so you’ll have a good place to start nurturing your (hopefully) new found love. Enjoy!
