I'm grateful for vegetables and for the fact that I enjoy and appreciate them so much more than I did when I was growing up. Growing up there were very few vegetables that I would eat on a regular basis: potatoes, corn, green beans, green peas, lettuce, raw carrots, celery, and cucumbers, and that's pretty much about it. I gradually learned to appreciate others like tomatoes, peppers, squash of all kinds, sweet potatoes and yams, spinach, beats, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and even eggplant and brussel sprouts. I'm sure that there are more that I just haven't thought of tonight, a cornucopia of goodness! Raw, steamed, roasted, boiled, baked and even creamed . . . Let's eat our veggies!
