The average American consumes 3-4 vegetables per week.

American’s love affair with fast food is almost incomprehensible considering the great variety of fresh vegetables available year round in every American town. Relatively few take advantage of this cornucopia. Most American eat vegetables rarely, and when they do their choices are confined to a few favorites like carrots, peas, tomatoes, and potatoes. Yet fresh vegetables can be the highlight of every meal. Few of them require much time to prepare, and most need very little time to cook. In every vegetable studied they prevents the development of cancers, tumors, diabetes, heart trouble and on and on. So be creative and eat a new vegetable.
