Eat your Vegetables!

IMG_1227Solid evidence that mom was right. Eat your vegetables and live a longer and healthier life! According to Dr. Eberhart-Phillips very few of us eat enough servings of fruits and vegetables (at least five) daily. For those who do, scientific data show it can reduce risk of heart disease (by 17%!), reduce risk of diabetes, stave off some types of cancer, and improve cognitive function as we age. Wow. Time to take those green smoothies seriously.

Veggies pictured above are a great way to prep them ahead to easily add to a salad or eat as a snack.
