Fresh Veggies Day

CFFBLOG1.jpgJune 16, 2017 (Friday)

Many times I have been shopping for groceries and a certain lady from the church would see me there, take a look at my basket, and sweetly remind me to fill my basket with fresh fruits and vegetables. I am, therefore, the last person to think himself qualified to write anything about this special June day, "Fresh Veggies Day."

But, here goes anyway, because I think it's a good idea. However, the nutrient content of canned and frozen fruits and vegetables is comparable to fresh, and, in some cases it may be higher than fresh. So says a website I consulted. It's on the internet, so it must be true, right?

But who will deny the fact that fresh foods taste better? And look better on the table and on the plate?

Many people have a great supply of fresh fruits and vegetables for themselves because they grow them in their own gardens.

I remember those days in the country many years ago when I was invited to dinner by church members and everything on the table came from their garden and had been cooked on their wood stove. M-m-m-m, it doesn't get any better than that. Fresh tomatoes, corn, peas, steak, chicken, and you name it--all homegrown. To quote a Fort Worth creamery, "It's better than good!"

If you are interested in your weight and your health, you probably need to eat more fruits and vegetables. It will reduce the risk of many illnesses. Physical activity is also quite important in maintaining good health.
