“Eat your vegetables!”. It’s something we’ve all heard our mom tell us as we were growing up. It turns out she wasn’t just nagging, but she actually had a really good point and our health in mind. For most of us during childhood vegetables probably weren’t our favorite food. When it came to pizza, hamburgers, soda, and candy it was always yes, yes, yes, and yes. But when the green stuff from the ground was put on our plate our appetites and enthusiasm were likely lost. I can’t tell you why this was often the case, but I can tell you why we should no longer avoid some of the world’s best sources of life giving and supporting nutrients.
