Today is Eat Your Vegetables Day! Remember how your parents used to tell you to eat your vegetables? They were right: vegetables are essential for living a long, healthy life, and they are also delicious! In recent years, there has been a steady rise in the number of American families that grow their own vegetables. The most popular crops for home gardening are tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers, and beans.
There are many ways to celebrate Eat Your Vegetables Day. Swap your junk food snack for fresh vegetables, start a container garden on your back porch, make a big salad for your family and friends, or become a vegetarian for the whole day!
