3 Beans Salad for Mother’s Day

With the arrival of spring and the upcoming summer months I can’t stop thinking about all the wonderful fruits and vegetables that will be arriving. Eating the color of the rainbow becomes a little easier this time of year. Zucchinis in their green and yellow bests, tomatoes ripe from the vine. What could be better in the upcoming months to help ourselves stay on track and meet our veggie goals. Daily an average american should consume four servings of vegetables. A serving of vegetables is ½ cup of cooked and 1 cup raw. I say, lets increase this and blow those goals out of the water. Let’s aim for 6 servings a day! Keep me posted on how you are doing by commenting on our facebook page.
