We all know that eating vegetables is so very important…in fact, how many billions of times did we hear out mothers tell us to “eat your vegetables” as we were growing up.

Eating leafy greens and veggies first things in the morning allows you to run out the front door…or garage door…and down your driveway with a grin on your face….

encourage you to use veggies in your other meals also
help you meet your daily fiber, protein and protein needs
help you stay alert and full of energy all day long.
