Today, June 17, is National Eat Your Vegetables Day. (It seems like everything has a day, doesn’t it?) Vegetables are the much maligned aspect of any diet. Everyone knows they should be eating them, but no one really wants to do it. Vegetables aren’t usually a favorite; often people have negative connotations from childhood and if you weren’t exposed to eating fresh veggies in your childhood, it can be difficult to change your taste buds. Most vegetables are low in calories and chock full of necessary vitamins and fiber, so adding more vegetables to your daily intake is a great ticket to weight loss.
Try some of these great recipes to transform your diet from blah to wow!
- Grilled Balsamic Vegetables
