Your parents told you to eat your vegetables but did you listen and do you continue to enjoy them today?

Nothing can upset your day better than not eating, especially when it comes to proper diet which include Fruits and Vegetables

So why aren't we eating more good foods like salads with fresh lettuce, garden grown tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and more.

The web site Fruits and Veggies More Matters lists the importance of a steady diet of fruits and vegetables, stating they are low in calories and provide us with fiber in our diet.

The warmer weather will be here soon and farmers markets all over our area will offer fresh locally grown fruit and vegetables, these foods are not only good for your physical health, they are equally as good for your mental health.

The internet if filled with great recipes to enhance your good food experience.

We have grown our own vegetables for a few years, so we'll cook up some squash, eat some tomatoes and cucumbers, and we also buy local from the area farmers markets during the season, you can't beat fresh produce, it's the best by far.

Summer will be here soon and many of us will BBQ, so might I suggest purchasing produces locally this season, grab some fresh veggies and some fruit, and enjoy a good meal along with your burgers, steaks, chicken etc.
