Eat vegetables daily and eat a lot of them.
I'm pretty fond of vegetables. In fact, last summer my husband and I started a raised-bed vegetable garden. He loves the mint that grows for his fancy mixed drinks. I love the kale for juicing and salads. He makes me a drink now and again. I make him kale stuff all the time, lol.
So the next time you're at the grocery store, spend a little bit more time in the produce section. Your body and your eyes and I will thank you.
