Here’s a Vox article on some of the reasons why Americans don’t eat enough vegetables, and some ideas for fixing that:
What do you think of those ideas? And do you have any favorite recipes or techniques for getting veggies on the table?
I’m partial to oven-roasting, especially cauliflower. And warm weather months are a good time for panzanella! I make a fairly simple one, and only when I have good tomatoes available. Ripe juicy tomatoes, big chunks of bread that were toasted in the oven at low heat, olive oil, salt, pepper, torn basil leaves, and mozzarella pearls, all tossed together — add cucumber or corn if you have some fresh — and there’s dinner! (Possibly with some questions from the kids like “Is this dinner?” and “Are we having any meat?”)
