I took this photo when we were in Baguio City Public Market. Kids today don’t like to eat vegetables. And that is a no no!
Greens are a neglected gold mine. Filipinos today are trained to eat at fast food restaurants as early as two years old or maybe even younger. While I was growing up, everybody is telling me that green leafy vegetables have a good effect on one’s health. Then why do Filipinos today rarely eat green leafy vegetables?
Why are cabbage, broccoli, turnip greens, and spinach are rarely seen at the Filipino’s dinner table?
Why is lettuce the only green vegetable that most Filipinos ever use. Yeah, they use it on their salads or as toppings on their burgers with thousand island dressings and mayonnaise.
Green vegetables are recognized by nutritionists as one of the most inexpensive sources of so many important nutrients. And yet, we take those green leafy vegetables for granted.
Kumain ng gulay dahil eto ay pampahaba ng buhay! (Eat vegetables for they prolong life!) Enjoy! Have a happy day!
