How can you not want to eat more veggies after listening to MS Hand?. She is so cheery and vibrant. What a SPARKLE she brings. So I say bring on the veggies. Put them in your eggs. Eat them as snacks. Keep a cup handy and measure them out. Report

Great tips! Going to start incorporating some of these today! Report
Great advice. I'm learning to love veggies. Report
I am lucky, I never have a problem getting in at least 5 fruits and veggies each day. I just love my raw fruits and veggies and if I am eating cooked veggies they are only steamed so that they are still vibrant and have lots of texture to them. Report

I did not know about the vitamin c loss when cutting green beans. I'll be leaving my fresh garden beans whole this year. Thanks for the tips! Report
Very interesting to know. Report
Great info, Thanks Report
I wasn't aware that cutting your veggies into smaller pieces depletes the nutrients. I wonder if that applies to soups where you drink the broth? Great video. Report
Excellent tips. Report
When we microwave veggies, we rinse the veggies in the dish we're going to microwave it in, then drain the water out of it and our veggies are always perfect cooking with what water stayed on them after the rinse and drain. Report

Great ideas! I buy canned whole green beans. I guess I'll cut them before I cook them!
