Eat Your Vegetables!


Vegetables of many hues,


Assortments from which to choose.


Chopped, diced, sliced, baked:  you peruse!


Leeks, eggplant, squash, collards, stews.


Peppers, onions:  you can’t lose!


Pot, pan or dish? Plain or bruised?


Braised, infused, herbed, spicy hot?


Read recipes!  No excuse!

    • Emily, thank you for the lovely comment. A healthcare professional urged me to consume a rainbow of colors with vegetables and fruits. Important in these times. Be well and enjoy the weekend. oxox
