National Eat Your Vegetables Day

The headline says it all: It’s National Eat Your Vegetables Day on June 17th. And how great that it is on a Monday, 4 days away from the official start of summer, to get you underway to a healthy start! This “holiday” should be everyday but I digress.

What veggies are in season in June?

Here are 3 of my most recent ygl vegetable recipes:

      Thanks Olivia. I am a big fan of plantains. I could eat them everyday.

  • Deborah Davis

    Thanks for a beautiful post! You make vegetables look so good!
    I also love eating fresh, organic vegetables in season.
    I am a big fan of quinoa so I love the quinoa recipe. I just made a pot of quinoa this morning in fact. I want to try the plaintain kale hash since I try to have kale every day.
    I usually find a way to add shitake mushrooms to most meals, so I will be trying that recipe as well.
