Eat Your Veggies!!

Good Morning,
It's Monday. Only 5 more day's until the weekend! Ha ha, can you tell I am not in the mood to work! I am awfully tired today.

My topic for today I had came up with yesterday while discussing with my brother why he needs to eat his veggies. His response was "Yuck". So I thought I would find some information on why, as a whole, most people don't like vegetables and why we all have such a negative vibe when it comes to them. What I found mostly is that people were forced to eat them as children, almost like punishment, so it created a negative psychological effect. Which is unfortunate because you may actually like vegetables, despite the negative correlation you have with them!  I also found that many people have more taste buds that are sensitive to bitter tastes. After researching some, I found an article on Web MD,  that gives some insight as to why we don't like vegetables and it has 15 tips for "veggie haters", as they say, to incorporate veggies into your life. I loved the information this article had. It was very interesting. I urge you to read it for you may find some ideas that will work with you and your family. I think this information is important as well when you are trying to get your kids to eat more vegetables. So I dedicate this to Kyle. Thanks for the idea!

My workout today was from :it was a 16 minute, intense cardio/bodyweight routine. It will definitely make you sweat! I also did a 5 minute lower body routine.

Have a great start to your week! Stay Active!
