From as far back as I remember my mother cooked vegetables,and served them with most of our meals.
"Eat up", she used to say.,"eat all your carrots and you will be able to see the fairies dark.!
I have always enjoyed vegetables.
There are a few I do not like, but i love and enjoy eating nearly all of them.
My dear mother, was, as our family always said. An excellent cook.
She enjoyed cooking good wholesome healthy meals. She was Into all this "Eating correctly" before all the diet books and cooking channels came onto the TV. What was healthy and what was not.
She had learnt it all from my grandmother. And so passed it on.
My cuisine here at home..is pretty international. I like to vary , it makes food and cooking interesting.
For more than a year now. I have not bought red meat. I eat white meat now and again..Chicken or Turkey steaks..fish and seafood. All accompanied with some sort of veggie , weather cooked or in a salad.
I don't call myself a vegetarian , as i do eat dairy products, and once in a while I will have the odd piece of red meat..but i seem to be eating less and less.
There are so many alternatives to eating red meat. I feel much healthier.
We all know what nutritious values vegetables give us. Some full of vitamin C,others with A, others with B, and so on. Adding to all this.. nuts, beans .. and of course. Not to forget the boost to our immune system.
Do you like vegetables! And what is your favorite soup.
