and what to do with them
Uncle says for optimum health eat 5 a Day!
Therefore...Veggies Galore! - With so much emphasis on finding adequate protein and B Complex vitamins, vegetables are an often overlooked aspect of the vegetarian diet; but here at your-vegetarian-kitchen.com we take Uncle Sam’s advice to heart.
Vegetables – we love them! Enjoying Five–a–Day is no hardship at all. From the hearty Roots to Stems and Shoots; from Onions and Leeks to the leafy Greens; from Peas, Beans and Seeds to the indigenous Squashes; from the Fruit like Tomatoes, Peppers, Aubergines, Avocados, Plantains and Bananas to the Woodland Fungus among us -- the variety is vast and the instances plentiful.
Of course we advocate organic veggies, fruits and herbs; as well as those that have been grown locally whenever you can find them.
