I’m taking my life into my own hands by eating more green stuff. I’m eating more lettuce, spinach and yes, kale. And I’m trying to fit seven fruits and veggies into my day, every day. This is nearly impossible, even without food recalls and E. coli scares. Here’s the thing – if you stay away from veggies, you are guaranteed to get heart disease, or fat, or feel logy from filling up on the wrong kinds of carbs, fats and calories. I did this during Hurricane Sandy, and I need to cleanse….quickly!
So, here are a few reminders to help you stay strong, fit and healthy:
- Wash all veggies
- Cook whatever you can
- Check dates for any expired or soon-to-expire foods
- Wash your hands after handling fresh veggies, meats and chicken
- Visit FDA.gov for u p-to-date recall information
And then eat your salads, your greens and your fruits. If you don’t, it’s a certainty that you will be less than healthy. That is one risk I don’t want to take.
